Can you tell us a bit about the art jewelry  movement?

The movement started developing after the Second World War in Europe where there has been a long tradition of art & craft movements.  It began in countries like Germany and the Netherlands and slowly began to flourish throughout the continent and then to other continents.

How many artists do you represent and from which countries?

We currently represent 20 artists from such diverse countries as Australia, Austria, Canada, Finland, Germany, Netherlands, New Zealand, Spain, Sweden and the United States.

Do you have any recent jeweler discoveries?

A recent artist to join us is Ezra Satok-Wolman, a highly skilled Canadian artist with a very interesting concept regarding his work.  Sometimes we discover the pieces and afterwards the artist.  If we see that the line of the artist has potential, we invite him or her to join as an artist of the gallery.

What makes your gallery different from others?

Galleries often share artists.  With a global market, we try to make a difference by asking the artist to create works especially for our gallery and these are usually presented in a solo exhibition.  We have four to five exhibitions a year.

Who are your typical customers?

We have customers from all over the world and each of them has a different approach to jewelry; we cannot say there is a typical customer.  Some know what they are looking for, some ask us for advice on works and some decide what to purchase based on love at first sight.  For us what is important is that they feel happy with the chosen piece.
