Contemporary Art Jewelry by Noam Elyashiv

Noam Elyashiv’s artwork derives from her interest in the correlations and interactions between line, plane, and volume, with the jewelry capturing the precision and linear quality of the drawings. She believes jewelry should not be imposing in appearance or weight, and that the body and the jewelry should complement one another, endeavoring to find a peaceful merging point between the two. Although making her home in the United States, Elyashiv was born and raised in Israel, where she received a BFA from Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem. She also holds a MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, where she is on the faculty. Elyashiv has received several awards for design excellence, including The America-Israel Cultural Foundation Award, the Absolut Vodka Emerging Artist Award, and a Fellowship in crafts from the Rhode Island State Council for the Arts.
