Hi. I am Geula Naigles. I have been involved with art for as long as I can remember. For a number of years, I worked as a graphic artist, designing marketing materials for a distribution company. Throughout the years, I have experimented with Fabric Arts, Painting, Embroidery, Tapestry Weaving, and Metalsmithing. I discovered my passion for Jewelry Design in the mid 1990's. I have participated in fine art shows across the Northeast and The Midwest. Each single piece is handmade by me using the finest quality gemstones, freshwater pearls and precious metals. Most of My work is textured and three dimensional. Each piece is unique, versatile, elegant and timeless One-Of-A-Kind Works of Art. Every season brings additional dimensions to my repertoire. I am constantly seeking new techniques and materials, incorporating and embellishing them to produce my own personal style. My work combines the mystery of North Africa with the enthusiasm of modern culture.
Each individual piece mirrors the exhilaration I feel for Life.
