Meirav Ohayon embarked on her life as a designer in 2003. Starting with bags and costumes for stage plays, she soon began to work with jewellery out of a desire to create smaller, more intimate items: “What I truly love about jewellery is the sentimental value they have and the freedom they afford their creator. Almost any item and shape can be made into a piece of jewellery” Her own unique tastes led Meirav to create pieces that were made primarily out of precious metals and stones, but also incorporated materials like malleable leather and black wax thread. It’s this desire to try new techniques and combinations that allow Meirav to produce truly one-of-a-kind statement accessories.
Renowned for: Caring about the small details, the artistic nature of the work, and the power of colour.
