Nirit Dekel

Nirit Dekel creates glass jewelry using the traditional lampworking technique using Italian Moretti glass. Her bright and colorful jewelry is influenced by the color and sights of her daily life. She strives to give personality to each of her beads, describing them as “awake, moving, bubbling, winking, and restlessly jumping.” Ranging from delicate to intense, she creates richly textured work with intriguing details. In some of her work, such as her chandelier necklaces and earrings, one can see the influences of Chihuly’s organic shapes arranged in careful order.

Nirit has been working in glass since 2000, when she was inspired by Chihuly’s monumental exhibition at the Tower of David Museum in Jerusalem, and left her career in sociology and tech to focus full-time on her artistry. She lives and works in Israel.
