Shenhav Russo

Israel-based designer Shenhav Russo uses the ancient technique of crochet to create intricate, delicate statement jewelry. Inspired by wide-open vistas and urban landscapes alike, she locates the true beauty of her art form in her ability to create anywhere: a spool of thread, gleaming natural stones or crystals, a crochet needle, and her imagination are all she needs. Russo adores contrast, and working with a mix of classic gold and refined modern threads enables her to exhibit her similarly deep appreciation for elegance and grace, with the finest stones and crystals added in for natural value and dramatic tone. When her pieces are finally worn, says Russo, “that’s when the real magic happens. The jewel continues its journey of evolution to take on the very aura of the woman, and ultimately becomes part of who she is.”
