Handmade in Capetown, South Africa
Modern and beautiful journal with a raised metal drawing illustrating the symbols of Israel and Judaism including: a peace dove, a Star of David, the Old City of Jerusalem, a hamsa hand, the Torah, a menorah, wine and a Kiddush cup, challah, wheat, and pomegranates. This is a perfect gift for someone who likes to sketch or keep a diary.
Iconz designs are visualized by Leslie, an artist working from her home studio in Cape Town, South Africa. Leslie studied Fine Art, and for her, creativity and color is what life is all about. Leslie and her husband, Gerald, travel extensively, always finding new inspiration both in Africa and abroad. On their travels, they gather ethnic findings, papers and beads to adorn their colorful collages. They work with a team of women workers, hand-cutting each design. Every spiral, zigzag of copper or brass is individually hand crafted, and every bead is patiently threaded to create the authentic and special handmade effect of their work.
