World Beaders: Israel

Today I want to extend a warm welcome to Inspirational Beading readers from Israel - home to some of the world’s most talented and innovative jewelry designers. Chances are good that you’ve seen the work of artists like Shay Aaron, Yoav Kotik, Lital Mendel, Orly Zeelon, and Sigal Buzaglo, who’s book Creative Beaded Jewelry is a personal favorite.

Israel is also a source of one of the beading world’s greatest treasures - ancient Roman glass. The very limited and incredibly beautiful nature of beads and components made from these relics makes them more valuable than gold for some!

Happy beading, Israel!

  1. I'm an American beader living in Israel. The first time I saw roman glass jewelry it took my breath away. Israeli jewelry designers are just exquisite and very inspiring!

  2. This post is such a feast for the eyes!

  3. I love the picture of the market place. Always a treasure to see what you can find. The blue door at the last picture is a wonderful inspiration for a necklace.
