Handmade With Passion

It's always wonderful to come across local artisans and independent designers who have such a passion in their body of work. I thought that I would share a few under the radar designers that I am loving at the moment. These accessories designers all tell a unique story in their pieces, which are influenced by everything from their cultures to mere shape and colour.

*Spotlight*  MeDusa
Tel Aviv based designing pair Gili Rozin and Adi Gal produce artful jewellery and accessory pieces with a youthful and modern sensibility. I love the irregular shapes created in the pieces, just as in their oversize, yet lightweight black chandelier earrings with chain, and in the shell-like earrings that could also be interpreted as the outline of floral petals.

You'll find textile impressions as well as colourful and daring combinations in their works ... all wearable! MeDusa uses an industrial technique in their handmade pieces with processed plastic that's quite different than traditional jewellery making methods. See their necklace above and also below my favourite earrings from the collection.


You may see more of MeDusa's accessories here on Boticca! To shop pieces from Ananasa visit here!

  7. I love the blue 'Photinus' necklace by Shanny Alon; and Badawyan earrings by Ananasa. Just love blues and greens. That's very lovely of you to feature under the radar designers. Back in Manila years ago, I used to buy accessories from a girl who made bespoke pieces and sold in bazaars. She eventually had her concessions in major dept stores and her work became mainstream. Whilst it was good for her, I did feel that the pieces were not as unique. I've kept some of her stuff and they're still as good as new as when I first bought them 11 years ago. Have a lovely week Madison! xx
