How it's made

Work process (or in other words: The reason why you need to wait that much time for your order )

All of our jewelry is handmade, and hand polished, that is why they are made to order. Working with another jeweler on production, the studio manages to manufacture between 50-80 items each month. Producing in small quantities allows us to make each piece in the highest standards and quality. 

Making the Model & Casting:

99% of Our jewelry are made in wax sculpturing technique. The Lost-wax process, the method of metal casting in which a molten metal is poured into a mold that has been created by means of a wax model. Once the mold is made, the wax model is melted and drained away. A hollow core can be effected by the introduction of a heat-proof core that prevents the molten metal from totally filling the mold. The lost-wax method dates from the 3rd millennium BC and has sustained few changes since then. 
Carving a wax mold takes 2-5 weeks.

Polishing

At the end of the casting process, we get rough metal castings that need to be polished and fined to accomplish the neat and finished shape you see in our product images. At this point, we deburr the castings with files and hand held rotary tools. Starting with stone wheels and bits that are coarse, then descend to tools with finer grits until deep scratches and unwanted shapes are removed. We slowly contour the surface of the metal to achieve an even satin finish that flows with the lines of the design.

Stone setting

When all metal work is complete, the precious stones or diamonds can now be added to the jewel. Specialized jeweler, skilled at the art of stone setting, uses precision, hand-held tools to secure gemstones and diamonds in the metal. He cuts slots into the precious metal, allowing them to sit level before they are tightened. The skilled hands of the setters apply just the right amount of pressure to finesse prongs, beads, and walls over delicate stones to ensure that they remain snug in their settings.

Final finish

With metalwork completed, the last step in jewelry making is polishing and finishing. This is a multistage process in order to achieve different textures such as shining bright/ matte/silver oxidization.

Our Studio & Inspiration

On April 2014 our studio was created by designer and goldsmith Elina Gleizer, after graduating her 4 years B.Des from Shenkar College of Engineering and Design. 
The workshop is located in Ramat Gan - Israel, inside Elina's and Pavel's home.

Drawing inspiration from nature using Cubism, and abstracts art. Breaking objects and figures down into distinct shapes and planes, aiming to create an abstract, clean and geometric look.
