For as long as I can remember, I have always been keen on handicrafts, especially jewelry, which I started making when I was a teen. I was born in Israel and traveled through Africa and America, always challenging myself to make different designs with what I found in the different countries I visited, such as wires, seeds, gems, bamboo, ceramic, and bone amongst others.

In 1995 I arrived in Mexico and became enthralled by the quantity, quality and variety of artesanias. I traveled up and down the country until someone told me about Taxco, describing it to me as the 'jewelry capital of the world.' When I came and discovered their art school, I just knew this was the place for me!

"I enrolled in Mexico's renowned National University (UNAM) where I learned about design, drawing, art history, lapidating, engraving, photography and of course, jewelry-making. By the time I finished in 1999 I felt I had gained a solid foundation that has allowed me to develop my own style and design. My collections have been well-received throughout Mexico.

"As form of expression, through jewelry I am able share what I observe, what I think and what I experience. When I'm designing I search for beauty, aesthetics and elegance. I look for a way to leave my personal mark.

"My favorite themes include contrasts, textures, contemporary designs and geometry. I enjoy transforming the old into the new. They say 'there's nothing new under the sun,' but there are always thousands of ways to create a piece to renew it."

NOVICA was started with a dream to create a better world for artisans, because a better world for artisans is a better world for all.

Along the way, the founders of NOVICA discovered something very important - as artisans around the world succeeded, there was also a visible and profound impact on the communities around them.

Your purchases are that powerful. They directly and indirectly provide for education, help with health care, fund basic needs, support children, preserve disappearing arts, and of course, spread happiness around the world.

The founders of NOVICA had a vision of the future that is not one of mega factories producing cookie cutter products for all to cheaply consume. Instead, a bright future that celebrates artisans who take the time to create an item by hand. A future where time is protected, where stories are told, where unique details are honored. Love, respect, inclusiveness become driving force.
