Born and raised in Israel, Ilana and Eran Hovev live in a small village surrounded by fields and forests in the mountains near the “City of Peace”, Jerusalem. Finding inspiration on their daily walks, they collect different types of Israeli wood from their surroundings. Their jewelry includes wood from olive trees, carob trees and cactus plants and are then encased in resin. These materials symbolize the connection to the Earth, Love and Peace.
Before they created their line of unique Israeli jewelry Eran and his family spread their knowledge and experience by building agricultural farms all over the world, especially in Africa. During Eran’s time in Ethiopia, he was confronted with homeless children affected by HIV and immediately opened an orphanage providing loving homes with families and a new chance at life.
