Hoshen (Priestly Breastplate) Ring
A magnificent Hosen Ring.
12 breastplate stones: diamond, sapphire, emerald, ruby, citrine, aquamarine, turquoise, tourmaline, amethyst, garnet, onyx, topaz.
And one fascinating story.
The breastplate of the trial, the high priest wore on the vest.
It was a cloth embroidered with gold, light blue, and crimson threads and inlaid with 12 precious stones according to the number of tribes so that each tribe would have a representation in the name in material and color.
Inside the breastplate was placed the "lights and innocence" - the operating mechanism that causes the letters engraved on the stones to twinkle the answers to questions and thus convey the message.
"Lights and Tomes" also appears in Paulo Coelho's book The Alchemist. Two black and white stones, symbolizing 'yes' and 'no' that are used to make decisions and read signals.
And today? Just like then they are still here.
Our inner compass, the order of our hearts, acts like lights and tomes as it illuminates the answers to the challenges in our lives.
"When asked what I do, I tell that I'm fulfilling dreams. Mine and others."
The sources of inspiration that influence me in my work are the stories behind the jewelry, my love of materials, work techniques, and more. The truth is that I enjoy every second and moment in this work probably because each person and his story ignites my imagination with a different fire, making this process fascinating and unique. Turn the meaning into a solid and tangible item, one that you can hold in the palm of your hand, or give to those you love.
Every piece of jewelry is a story, it is a meaning, it is a memory, It crosses cultures, continents and time, symbolizing power and continuity and although each time the form is different the connection between spirit and matter as between body and mind is preserved in all. The thing that connects me to all the stories is the accuracy.
