‘I am a Danish jewelry designer with roots in Israel. I create handmade jewelry from our workshop in Copenhagen, drawing inspiration from the Nordic lightness and minimalism and mysterious energy and surroundings from the Middle East.

I only work with 18K solid recycled yellow gold. I am in love with the feeling of working with it, creating textures. The gold texture is my way of telling stories. The yellow gold I use has a direct connection to the Middle East. Many of the things I create are stories about the streets of Jerusalem, the path to the Dead Sea, the textures of the mountains, cliffs and desert lines.Gold has always fascinated me. I have always been infatuated with my grandmother and her friends sitting on the porch in Tel Aviv dripping in gold. This has imprinted itself in my mind and has followed me throughout my life – I love the way jewelry is made to be passed on through generations and becomes a part of the woman and her story. I remem- ber the exact moment when I knew it was my calling – I have never looked back since and I have had ELHANATI since 2011.

I am inspired by my environment and people around me. The nature, the sea, the clean lines of the desert, rocks, THE RAWNESS is deeply inspiring to me. I am not religious, but I believe in these greater powers that have such a force, that we cannot comprehend. Each thing I create whether it be a piece of jewelry or something in my home is somehow inspired by all these different places and people. It is very important to me that there is a feeling behind everything I do.

My clients are very different and it would be impossible to define them. I see many of them as ‘collectors’. They always start with a piece then build their collection from there. I see both men, women – young and old – with my jewelry and am humbled every time.

When I make jewelry I always sit by myself. I need silence and the time to stand still, other- wise it is impossible to remain playful in this fast-paced world. We only use Top Wesselton VVS and VS diamonds as I believe the jewelry is something you keep with you for eternity, it is something borrowed, it is never really yours, and it is something to pass on to the next generation.’
