Intro
Dania Chelminsky lives and works in Israel and has been experimenting with jewellery since 1989. With a diverse curriculum reaching different areas such as Science,  Jewellery Design, Gemology and Design for the Performing Arts, her jewellery juxtaposes natural and manmade materials " as a statement (...) about the way we refer to our surrounding world." 
 

Statement

I combine contrasting materials in my work; organic with synthetic, hard and soft, crafted and found, creating a possible connotation and meaning.
I am intrigued by their touching points, using traditional metalsmithing techniques to emphasize moments of tension, telling a story.
I wonder about the meaning of recycling.
Pieces and bits, disposable, unnecessary transform to precious fractures of garbage.
I combine these materials as a statement, as a moment of thought about the way we refer to our surrounding world.
