A gentle blue vase with pristine sand, these unique pieces are blown by hand with the wistful longing of an artist who can’t wait to return to Israel. After these vases are finished, they are rolled in sand from the shores of the Mediterranean and the Sea of Galilee, or from the dunes of the Negev.
Perfect for: An Israeli friend who misses their home, or a friend who is deeply connected to their Jewish roots.
Nothing blends the fun of a children’s game with the symbolism of a pomegranate quite like this pewter dreidel. Beautifully balanced for a perfect spin each time, this piece is a functional, beautiful, and a whimsical design that any recipient will love.
Perfect for: A collector of dreidels or pomegranates, or someone who appreciates an interesting design.
This stunning necklace features six different types of agate, each one lovingly set in its rhodium bezel by a local artist, originally from South Africa. Each piece designed by this artist is one-of-a-kind, so be sure to pick this one up before it’s gone!
Perfect for: The women in your life with grace and poise; or a gift to purchase for yourself!
