The Holidays are coming, the Holidays are coming! Whether you celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah or even Kwanzaa, the season of giving and celebration is definitely right around the corner. If you're anything like me, you've already started hunting for those perfect gifts for the special people in your life.
Now I don't know about you, but I love finding gifts that are unique and show genuine feelings. Sure, there are tons of prepackaged, mass marketed gift sets at your local chain stores. Some of them are actually pretty fun. But still, nothing says "I love you" like a beautiful and unique gift that can only be found outside of those big box stores.
One great place to find absolutely stunning artisan jewelry is Kelka Jewelry. The very talented artist, Keren, lives and works in Israel, and is truly on the cutting edge of fashion. Her work has been spotted on celebs like the Miss USA, Tara Conner and Grammy Award Winning songstress, Alicia Keys. (How cool is that?!)
Here is a bit more about Keren, and the inspiration behind Kelka Jewelry:
"I have been creating jewelry since I was a child. One of my first memories is creating a knitted crown of daisies I picked from a field near my house using some yarn I found at home.
Knitting and crocheting seems to run in my family. I grew up seeing my mother and grandmother crocheting little table wears, tapestries and Macramed plant hangers... At around the age of 7 or 8 my mother began to teach me to work with wire using pliers and cutters. It wasn't until my 20s I realized I could combine the two to create very interesting jewelry using textile techniques in metals.
I love to travel. I gain so much inspiration for designs and techniques from traveling to different cultures. I learned about colors and tapestry making in Guatemala, and received the inspiration for one of my collections after visiting the Taj Mahal in India."
Intrigued? I was, too! Kelka Jewelry specializes in jewelry that is not only absolutely gorgeous and rich in feminine detail, it is also designed to speak to the spirit. Much of the jewelry features Hebrew or Kabbalah designs and sentiments, but there is also plenty to choose from for those outside of that faith. There are even some very creative Zodiac symbol pieces that are sure to delight anyone who recieves them.
Here are just a few of my favorite pieces from Kelka Jewelry:
Aren't these pieces amazing?! I could spend hours just browsing the Kelka Jewelry Etsy Shop. Keren's work is so detailed and inspirational, and it resonates very much with the spirit.
My Review of the Regal Spiral Cuff in Rose Gold :
I was generously provided with the amazing Regal Spiral Cuff Bracelet in Rose Gold to check out for myself. Although the piece shipped directly from Israel, it arrived in about a week's time. (Pretty quick!) I was delighted to see that this bracelet was beautifully packaged. I love when companies use special touches when packaging their goods. It makes the recipient feel quite special. To me at least, little details like this mean a lot!
Once I removed my cuff bracelet from it's pretty pouch, I was blown away. The beautiful scrolling designs paired with the warm, rich rose gold was positively breathtaking. I was definitely very impressed by the quality of workmanship as well as the feminine feel to this cuff. Photos simply do not do this piece justice, as it has a warmth and depth that has to be seen in person to fully appreciate.
This cuff features an intricate spiral design with a middle floral coin, 3/4 inches wide (tall) and 6 inches around, with a 1 inch opening. The cuff has some adjustability and flexibility. It is lovingly made from Rose Gold plated brass.
The bracelet fit my wrist perfectly. I love the size of this cuff because it's not too flimsy but not chunky or overpowering, either. It's really the perfect size for a woman who wants to make a statement without being gaudy. This piece is very versatile and can be worn as an everyday piece as well as for those special occasions.
Overall, I am absolutely delighted with my Regal Spiral Bracelet from Kerek Jewelry. It is very well made, incredibly unique in design, and it is also very comfortable to wear. I have received many, many compliments on this bracelet, and would definitely recommend it as a great Holiday gift idea. Also, for my Jewish friends out there, be sure to check out the huge collection of Hebrew jewelry!
