Yemenite Jewelry

 
Yemenite jewelry is characteristic in that it is made of many little pieces of silver, gold or metal connected together or twisted silver wire Filigree. It is said that Jews arrived in Yemen on escorting the Queen of Sheba king David’s wife home to Africa, where they stayed for more than 2000 years. In Yeman many Jews worked as silversmiths and Jewelry makers. The craft was passed down from father to son and children started as apprentices twisting the silver into shape at a very early age. 
“In Yemen , a person who wanted a piece of jewelry would give five silver coins to the silversmith. Three coins were melted for the jewel itself and the two other coins were the jeweler’s fee.” says Ben-Zion David in his site www.yemenite-art.com. You can visit Ben-Zion David’s studio in Jaffa and participate in one of his workshops.

Rimon (Pomegranate) inspired Israeli Jewelry

The Rimon (pomegranate) has been an important part of Jewish symbolism at least sing the first Jewish Temple (Beit Hamikdash) when  images of the fruit were woven on to the robe of the High Priest of the temple, the Cohen HaGadol (Exodus 28:33–34). Pomegranates also hung from the top of the pillars At the entrance to the temple and King Solomon used the design of the pomegranate’s “crown” as an inspiration for his own crown (1 Kings 7:13–22). Im Jewish tradition the pomegranate is a symbol for righteousness as it has 613 seads, the same number as the number of mitzvot. The pomegranate is one of the Seven Species of the land of Israel (wheat, barley, grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives, and dates) listed inm the book of Excudus.
By tradition the pomegranate is set on the Rosh Hashanah table and is eaten on the holiday.

The Rimon (pomegranate) shape is also popular in Israeli jewelry. It seems to be more popular in Israeli Judaica jewelry, and less so outside of Israel, maybe because it symbolizes the land of Israel as one of the from the 7 Species. Rimon jewelry comes in a variaty of styles and prices, here are some. The most expencive piece of pomegranate jewelry in this list is a kabbalah necklace with a little gold Rimon pendent inlayed with diamonds and has a capsule of pomegranate oil inside of it.

 

Sigaliot Polymer Clay Jewelry and Decorations

For a while now I have loved these adorable Polymer Clay Jewelry and Decorations by the brand Sigaliot. They are always so rich in bright happy colors and cute designs that make me happy looking at them. So of course, as I often do, I Googled them and found their site.

Sagit is the polymer clay artist behind Sigaliot. As it turns out Sigaliot polymer jewelry is available on Etsy. Which is lucky for you people outside Israel who can also buy Sigaliot jewelry via Etsy.

In her profile Sagit says that she hand makes all of her products in her home studio in Karmiel.
I love this part of what Sagit writes in her Etsy Profile”  
“My art is my heart ♥
I hope you love and appreciate it too.”

 I do Sagit, I really do.

Galit Wietzman‘s גלית וייצמן beautiful jewelry designs remind me of antique jewellry. Her designs are elegant and romantic and have a kind of old world feel to them.
Most of Galit Wietzman jewelry that I have seen combines clay and metal elements. The clay is usually a muted blue, sage green or grayish-offwhite.
I have seen Galit Wietzman’s jewelry designs in many places and they are always recognizable as hers.
