I'm having tomorrow a summer sale together with the fashion designer Orly Linkovsky.
It will be held in a VERY nice house in Moshav Beer-Tuvia (see map).
I will be presenting both my silver and gold collection and of course my poms, pears and lampshades.
you are all invited:)

The Paper Pomegranate summer issue came in the mail this morning, it was my first issue since I only joined the guild lately.
When I joined I sent some info and photos about my wire pomegranates to the editor, apparently he found it interesting enough for the other guild members and put half a page editorial mention of me and my work, I was and still am SO excited about it.
Although I'm not religious and don't consider myself a traditional person I feel somehow connected to this guild.
For those of you that don't know the guild it has a website where you can read more and maybe join too.
here is a short quote from the website :
"When members of the Pomegranate Guild sit down to stitch, they are making more than just table linens and wall hangings. They are reviving Jewish traditions through their work with textiles. Some create their works as heirlooms for their children; others stitch to recreate memories of ceremonial objects or perhaps of family members lost in the Holocaust. All their works are expressions of their heritage and their religious faith."
Here is the scanned editorial about my work:

It all started with a very dear client of mine that leaves in Texas, she was the first to challenge me with these scales of hoops, not sure I would have gone there if not for her...
When she first ordered the jumbo hoops as a special order I thought this was definitely the biggest I can go, I of course loved it and made a pair for me as well....
Then a couple of weeks later a biggest challenge came in the form of even bigger hoops.
She told me she would wear the jumbo (silver and gold) during week days and the giant on weekends.
The jumbo are 2.4" (6cm) and the Giant are 3.1" (8cm), and I have to admit it is "bigger then life"... but SO chic/unique, impossible to ignore.
If I could through a dime and make a wish I would love to see Penélope Cruz
wearing my giant hoops, who knows it might happened , maybe if i wish hard enough :)
