Israel artist Ester Shahaf
The artist resides and works in Binyamina, a rural town in Israel where she is surrounded by nature which inspires her creations. Drawing on a rich oriental heritage and the Jewish tradition, she synthesizes them with modern techniques to hand craft the most captivating items. From her one of a kind jewelry to sumptuously decorated candlesticks and Hanukah Menorahs she imbues these items with charm and quality. When you look closely at her hamsas, you'll see clever hints and meanings in the small figures, such as Star of David, doves and abstract themes, too. Her Mezuzah cases are made of metal and come in distinctive patterns, not like anything you've seen before. Her key rings are masterpieces of macro art with hand beading and metal work done on miniature surfaces, fashioning lovely quality pieces.
