It's me. Leah Gerber - jewelry designer, internet shop manager, blogger
Since I was a little girl I wished to study the fine arts. While grew up , I attended sculpture classes, art school, painting classes.
In Israel I took a few jewelry-making courses in college, studied at the internationally renowned Jeweler Carol Zarate studio. I learned how to work with wax and with metal, learned to make things from scratch.
In 2008 and 2009 my jewels were exhibited at the Jewelry Olympus show in St.-Petersburg.
Also in 2008 I took part in a competition organized by a Jewelry Artist Journal published in Malvern and came in 2nd in the 2008 Awards.While I'm working on a specific project, it is very important for me to be totally enthralled with the item that I'm creating. Sometimes, when I say “That’s it! That’s what I wanted!” ( and many designs never do reach that stage, and are discarded), I feel that the joy I felt in the creative process will pass to the person who ultimately wears jewelry I designed and it will bring her happiness.
