Israeli designer, jeweler Yoav Kotik creates artful jewelry – necklaces, bracelets, brooches, earrings, rings, pendants from discarded bottle caps. You may check Yoav’s unique jewelry creations on his online shop. Meanwhile, the artist finds the inspiration for creating his beautiful works in ethnic jewelry which the artist saw in markets when he traveled in Kenya. In his opinion, the ability to take nothing and make something out of it is amazing.
According to Yoav, he chooses to work with metal bottle caps, “they are my raw materials, I’m not sure that I chose it as much as it chose me”. In any case, materials that had already done a role in their lives, has a lot of character. The challenge is to take and to give them a new life. It involves lots of research – to find out what the material can do and how it reacts to the various processes. Also it is always interesting to use various techniques to find the favorite one. And it is always interesting to learn the limitations of these materials.

“When I come to develop a new item, I turn back and seek inspiration from primitive / ethnic jewelry. I declare to myself what is the direction and what it is going to be, then I develop sketches within the material, the result is a synthesis between my statement and the capabilities of the material, and I realized we are working pretty well together”.
