Nelly Cohen Handmade Jewelry from Israel

Israel is a country of contrast and convergence: an intersection of cultures since the dawn of time. Ancient traditions thrive within modern lifefr

Camels are juxtaposed with jets and ancient texts are explored as fervently as the frontiers of modern science. The wisdom of the ages provides a solid foundation for innovation. This is fertile ground for creative minds.

Drawing inspiration of these influences, Nelly Cohen, contemporary Israeli designer, combines old world craftsmanship with leading edge technology.

Nelly, a graduate of Haifa University with master degree in French literature has integrated her love of poetry into her designs.

"I start with words" she says... "The lyric precedes the design"... "when I hear the rhythm I know a winner is born".

About the name: Cherie (sweet in french) Dori indeed very Cherie, the eldest of three children in the family was the inspiration for the name Cherie Dori.™​
