Collection: Anat Gelbard

“I am distinctively a ‘raw materials person’ who must feel, touch, and manipulate the materials I am using with my own hands. Early in my career, I chose to master the craft of jewelry. However, looking back, throughout the years I always engaged in additional projects, experimenting and experiencing different materials and angles alongside creating jewelry. That is the reason I was also drawn to working with leather, which naturally led me to creating my intricate leather bags. My work is not defined or constrained by seasons or trends, but rather inspired by the different cultures and lifestyles of the time".

Anat designs and handcrafts distinctive high-karat gold precious jewelry. Her work is based on creating individual pieces within a theme, which then form part of a collection. Each item is individually handcrafted, given its own unique qualities and details, using ancient and traditional goldsmithing techniques. The hammered, scratched, burnished, and matte gold finished surfaces are all made by hand. Due to their sculptural nature, some details are spontaneously formed directly on the workbench. Finally, all of this is composed into timeless pieces bearing Anat’s personal style and mark.
