If the crown jewels could be reinterpreted into shapes of glass, Nirit Dekel’s jewelry could be used in a royal ordination. Nirit is one of Israel’s jewelry artisan superstars. We were first introduced in 2009 at Loot, The Museum of Art and Design’s jewelry fair. I had just been through a very difficult time in my life and Nirit gifted me a crystal ice necklace that automatically lifted my spirits. Aside from the great kindness she displayed, I noticed her flawless craft. Since then we have participated in many jewelry fairs courtesy of my Mama Donna, Donna Schneier.
