From her small workshop in Binyamina, Israel, Ester Shahaf creates a stunning line of jewelry and Judaica. Drawing her inspiration from her surroundings, Ester combines orient with nouveau and the historic with modern to create beautiful pieces reflective of the exotic Mediterranean heritage and culture. Esther uses a blend of pewter, silver, brass and Swarovski crystals to create style and flair in each piece. On a recent trip to Israel, Hatikva owner Denise Schwartz and her family visited Ester's home and studio. They were greeted with incredible hospitality, warmth, and down to earth friendliness. These traits have undoubtedly helped Ester build a successful company with a stunning product line and many happy customers. We are proud to carry Esther’s very original art, each piece hand-crafted and personally signed by the artist.
