Values and Choices

Hi there, It's election day here in Israel. None of the parties are an exact fit to my world view, so I had to make choices. I had to check my values, and consider each of them against the values of the possible parties from which I had to choose. It was about choosing the most important values. Those that will ensure a democratic compassionate future for our neck of the wood. When designing a new piece of jewelry, I always go back to the core values of BAARA Jewelry.

Minimalism and Minimal Jewelry

What is minimalism? Ever since I started designing minimal jewelry three years ago, I kept asking myself that question.

It changes both physically, through the contact with your skin and the environment  that surrounds you, as well as spiritually, retaining new memories. It becomes part of the identity you present to the world and to yourself.

Minimalism in Design

Why are so many of us drawn to minimalist design?

Well, minimalism is right for us because by reducing the noise to a minimum, we are able to focus on what's important. We are able to pay attention to detail, and evaluate quality. 

In my journey to understanding minimalism I mapped the elements by which we can measure a good minimal design: Balance, space, details, form and function.

It is about simplicity along with sophistication.
