Ever since she can remember, Ayala Bar has loved drawing, sculpture, embroidery and sewing. She studied art in a professional capacity but people are surprised to learn that this did not include jewelry making or silver smithing. Yet, Ayala Bar has always been drawn to jewelry as a form of expression and, given that she has stayed involved in several fields of creativity at once, the area of collage came naturally to her. “Matchmaking” materials is what she loves to do: testing contrasts, colors and
textures and how they interact together. Combining beads and soft tassels with jagged surfaces; matte textures with shiny metals.
