When it comes to concrete jewelry, one question that often arises is whether or not these pieces will be heavy to wear.
The answer: not at all. Concrete jewelry is very lightweight
One thing that is important to note that concrete is actually a lighter material than metal, so a piece of concrete jewelry of the same size as a piece made entirely of silver would actually be lighter in weight.
This is because concrete contains small, air-filled pores, which give it a lighter overall density. While we may typically think of concrete as a heavy material it is a trick our minds play on us because concrete is used in the construction of buildings, bridges, and other large structures.

Usually, when we think of Wabi-Sabi we visualize something rustic, unfinished or tainted, changed if you will, by time and the elements. Take a look at the wall in this picture for example....

Hi friends, Since I am working with my hands all day long, and am proud that one of the core values of my business is the meticulous handmade process, I am often faced with issues regarding mass production vs. handmade small series process. This issue was the beginning point of an exhibition I presented in collaboration of my studio partner Adi Yair (a weaver and fashion designer) at the Design week of Jerusalem 2018 last month.
