Ever since Ayala Bar can remember she has loved drawing, sculpture, embroidery or sewing. Ayala studied art
in a professional capacity but people are sometimes surprised to learn that this did not include jewelry making
or silversmithing. Yet, she have always been drawn to jewelry as a form of expression and,
given that I have stayed involved in several fields of creativity at once, the area of collage
came naturally to me. “Matchmaking” materials is what she love to do: testing
contrasts, colors and textures and how they interact together. Combining beads and soft tassels
with jagged surfaces; matte textures with shiny metals. For me, the possibilities are
boundless and anything can trigger creative impulse.
