Drawing inspiration from these influences, contemporary Israeli designers combine old-world craftsmanship with leading-edge technology. Israel is a country of contrast and convergence: an intersection of cultures and the crossroads for trade since the dawn of time. Ancient traditions thrive within modern life. Today 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 from these influences, contemporary Israeli designers combine old-world craftsmanship with leading-edge technology. Nelly Cohen, a graduate of Haifa University with a Masters in Art and Modern French Poetry taught art at Yanccodada Museum in Ein-Hod, Israel. Nelly, with her husband Simon, started the Cherie Dori Collection. The fruits of these artists’ efforts are meticulously crafted in 14k and 18k gold. Their sophisticated, clean, modern designs reflect the ancient knowledge of geometry, proportion, and aesthetics. Timeless beauty is revealed in a fresh new way.
A native of the Netherlands, Cornelis Hollander studied art and jewelry design at the Vrije Academie in Den Haag, Holland. As a young graduate, he apprenticed for two years in Hatton Gardens, London’s renowned jewelry district. Adventure then called young Cornelis to Johannesburg, South Africa — the diamond and gold capital of the world —where he opened his own studio and started designing jewelry. Living and traveling in Africa, the young designer’s imagination and creativity were blooming. After several years, adventure called again — this time to America, where Cornelis and future wife, Christa, settled in Phoenix, Arizona. Over the years, his natural talent was refined by education, travel and diversified cultural experiences. Today he is one of the premier jewelry designers in the world. When asked how he comes up with new design ideas, he replies: “It’s like poetry. When a poet sees beautiful scenery, a poem naturally flows into his mind. Just by looking at a beautiful gemstone, I can envision the finished piece. That’s why I say creativity is akin to a waterfall — all of the elements fall together.” Old-world training and experience, combined with state-of-the-art innovations, make Cornelis Hollander a jewelry designer of distinction. His passion for beauty, his dedication to excellence and his unique vision promise a future filled with elegant, wearable art in motion.

Each collection is an adventure with passion, intensity and desire. It's a process of continuous exploration. My passion is to capture the sudden thrill of nature's beauty within my creations." Says John Bagley, the innovative designer of the dynamic jewelry line that bears his name. John Bagley began his jewelry career 50 years ago when he was an anthropology graduate student at Berkley.
