If you’re not careful, you could end up with a real mess on your hands. However, if you’re lucky, you can make it a hot mess. This completely random combination of shimmering, reflective glass beads is a stand-alone statement. Orli says, “I really wasn’t thinking when I made this. I was going along and sort of tuned out. When I tuned back in, I realized the direction I’d taken and thought it was great! Sometimes you just have to let your mind do the thinking for you.”
Everyone doodles. Most people doodle on the most easily accessible piece of paper with a pen or pencil, but as a jeweler, Orli doodles in jewelry. Always susceptible to inspiration, Orli enjoys tinkering in her studio with miscellaneous shapes, colors, ideas, and materials. Unintentional, random, and accidental, these works are the products of spontaneous inspiration onsets.
