Ariella Har-Even

Cleveland Institute of Art

Born and raised in Israel, I grew up immersed in an amalgam of cultures, faiths, and customs. The juxtapositions that surrounded me – the ancient and the modern, tradition and innovation, are embedded in me still and inform both my work and my process. My work explores the common threads connecting culture and time; the exotic or historical can often seem far removed, and my work sets them in a contemporary world in wearable form. Through the use and exploration of both traditional and nontraditional jewelry materials, I aim to use wearable art as a form of storytelling.
