The only thing that guided me in choosing the turquoise pendant I wore for a long time was my intuition, I did not part from it day and night, I felt that it was my third eye.
The connection between him and me caught the attention of strangers who saw me wearing it, and then I saw their eyes drawn to the pendant around my neck.
In difficult and frustrating moments, I found myself holding it, stroking and getting the strength to move on.
I realized that there was something beyond its beauty that was doing good things for me, and I started looking for this thing.
As part of my research, I came to know about the barbaric women in Morocco, whose traditional role involved leaving the house. They went out to pasture, collect firewood, and drew water.
These women wore jewelry that had functional uses, such as large rings with buckles used as weapons in case they were attacked.
The necklaces and pendants they wore on their necks were talismans for them, they believed they were protected from bad spirits and offered them good fortune. Each color and shape of the bead had meanings. The colorful, aesthetic and aesthetic choice was driven according to needs and beliefs, and not from the values we define today as stylish and fashionable.
I began to realize that the jewels I create are my amulets, because thinking about design and performance has kept me away from bad thoughts, and the result has brought me joy and luck.
I declared myself a creator of secular amulets, the inspiration for their work I receive from everyday life and combines them with deep color.
Colors are the value that dominates my amulets because each color has meaning. Soon after I choose to change the color of my amulet I understand what the change meant.
In the attached set of photographs, I used the seeds of the Erodium gruinum plant.
In Hebrew, the plant is called "Stork's beak" due to its fruit that looks like a Source of stork 5 seeds stand out at the base of the fruit and look like the head, each bearing a long bristle. Clasped together, the whole thing looks like a stork's source.
When the seeds ripen, they dehydrate and disengage from the leaves. Each curling like a clock hand and the circular motion helps him to stab into the ground, waiting patiently for the next year's rain.
So far the botanical section, and we'll move on to the photographs:
The seeds I picked up would no longer be grounded naturally but were metamorphosed into sea creatures
