INSPIRATION

It all began with a wondrous discovery of an ancient Jewish cult named The Essenes. Also referenced the Second Temple Judaism cult, The Essenes flourished from the 2nd century BCE to the 1st century CE. They have gained their modern fame due to the discovery of religious documents called the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Both cult and scrolls ignited my curiosity and I started documenting more details regarding their way of living. As part of my creative voyage, I spent a lot of my time exploring the Dead Sea area and magic happened right from the beginning.

The environment, natural resources, and desert colors affected me immediately and inspired the creation of my own “cult” of jewels, born from my strong connection to the Dead Sea and the wild and magical habitat of this unique cult following through its values and principles through thick and thin.   

Welcome to my world.
