Recently, we were asked a rather
"so what happens when industrial materials
meet contemporary jewelry design?"
Apparently the answer is, "you get inspired
jewelry created by Hila Rawet Karni. "
Blending together a passion for both
industrial design and contemporary jewelry,
Hila expresses a distinct point of view
by marrying a variety of
industrial materials like plastic components
and metal springs to textiles, leather and pearls.
By transferring the skills and knowledge she
learned while studying industrial design
to the traditional world of jewelry she creates a
connection between mundane materials
and a graceful aesthetic.
It's jewelry that suggests a feminine style
with an urban edge.
There are many pieces in her collections
that we simply adore. Here are a few
of our favorites.
Several of her necklaces are made with
silver-plated stainless steel springs and
hand-woven leather laces.
It's exciting to see the delicate potential in
industrial raw materials and to have them
be transformed into objects of beauty.
These earrings feature stainless steel springs,
Swarovski pearls and sterling silver.
She makes it easy to develop an appreciation
for jewelry that is not made out of
gold and silver but is just as
beautiful and sumptuous.
These bracelets are made with
stainless steel springs and silicone connectors.
This artist is willing to experiment with industrial
materials to create items that can be appreciated
as adornment. We're inspired by her ability
to see beyond the common uses
of items and to expose their
hidden potential as jewelry.
