Noam Elyashiv’s jewellery carries with it a pervasive sense of pure and tranquil simplicity. Like fine line drawings in metal, it explores the interplay between line, plane and volume and the evolution of two-dimensional shapes into objects that find their form on the body. Noam believes jewellery should not impose itself; that body and jewellery should complement one another as they seek to find a harmonious merging point.
Born in Tel Aviv in 1963, Noam holds a BFA from Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem and an MFA from Rhode Island School of Design in Providence in the US, where she has taught since 1994. Her work has been exhibited across Europe and the US and she has won several awards including the Rhode Island State Council for the Arts Fellowship and the America Israel Cultural Foundation Award.
