About

“Alice laughed. 'There's no use trying,' she said. 'One can't believe impossible things.'
'I daresay you haven't had much practice,' said the Queen. 'When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast. There goes the shawl again!”

Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking Glass

Michal Oren Jewelry is a Tel-Aviv based design studio. All jewelry pieces are designed and handcrafted by Michal Oren with great care for detail, using traditional silversmith techniques. All jewelry are made of solid metals, not coated. Oren uses brass, silver, 14 karat gold and 18 karat gold, with matte finish.

Later on she received her BFA in Jewelry Design from the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem, and continued to MA studies in Art History at the Tel-Aviv University.

"At the heart of my aesthetic lays the tension between contemporary and classic, drawing and sculpting, two dimensions and three dimensions. Based on modern art thinking and american post-minimalist sculpture, my designs are a product of a continuous exploration of shapes which interface with the body and its movement. Inspired by nature, architecture, and sculpture, I am drawn to the creation of delicate pieces with a powerful presence."
