- About Me & My Art-
My name is Shiri Avda I am a jewelry designer and an artist.
I graduated from both the Law Faculty at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and the Jewelry Design Faculty at Shenkar the College of Engineering and Design.
I founded my brand ShA by Shiri Avda on 2012. But it all started much earlier;
Since I can remember, I was fascinated
with beauty. I could see it everywhere:
on people faces and movements, while
traveling in nature, on the beach of my
home town, in my grandmother jewelry box …
As I grew older and started traveling around
the world I couldn’t believe how diverse and vast
beauty is. And so, my perpetual search for hidden
patterns of beauty and absolute truths started.
Making art, in addition to my jewelry collections, is an essential part in my life and in who I am.
I love to be free from all limitation exploring my thought. The process of creating objects is my non-literal way of thinking; it is exploring thoughts through materials, colors and shapes.
Finally, creating a piece that binds spirit and matter.
Who said that my B.A In Law doesn’t
goes very well with my B.A in Jewelry Design?
Among the materials I work with you can find old books pages, plastic bags, threads, fabrics as well as precious metals like gold and silver, different kind of stones, an enamel and so on.
