Paola Paley

My Journey

Welcome to my world of creativity and craftsmanship! 

I'm Paola, a passionate goldsmith and jewelry designer, and I'm thrilled to share my journey with you.

My adventure in goldsmithing began at Kinneret College in the Jordan Valley, where I laid the foundation for my skills. However, much of my learning unfolded at my own bench, Aswell with private lessons and professional courses.

An unforgettable part of my journey was spending three amazing months in Jaipur, India. There, I immersed myself in the vibrant world of jewelry at a local factory. From polishing gemstones to exploring Jaipur's rich culture, I found inspiration everywhere, leading to the creation of my very first collection inspired by the beauty of leaves and flowers.

But my story doesn't end there. My studio has undergone remarkable transformations over the years. From building a studio inside an old public bus to the enchanting haven I've built in Kibbutz Lehavot HaBashan, each space has been a reflection of my innovative spirit and dedication to my craft.

Today, I reside in Thailand, where I continue to pursue my passion for creation and teaching. 

Here, I collaborate with top-quality factories and lapidary suppliers to ensure the highest quality materials for my designs. Alongside crafting exquisite pieces, I also share my knowledge and expertise through teaching and workshops.

Beside goldsmithing I also express my creativity through oil and pencil paintings, which you can explore on my website.

I firmly believe that jewelry should be as unique as the individual wearing it. That's why I offer a diverse range of styles, ensuring that every piece resonates with the personal taste of its wearer.

My workshops, designed to inspire and delight participants of all ages, offer a unique and exhilarating experience whether held in my studio or at your location. Furthermore, I provide specialized goldsmithing techniques in my teachings, ensuring a comprehensive learning experience for all enthusiasts. 

Together, we craft beautiful pieces that serve as constant reminders of the love and creativity within each of us.

Thank you for joining me on this journey. I invite you to explore my creations, participate in workshops, and experience the joy of wearing jewelry that reflects your unique beauty and style. 

Let's create something beautiful together!
