The handcrafted designs that make up the brand Yoster are accompanied by a sense of the raw materials which are delicately treated to make fine jewelry. With clear attention to detail, Hila Amar, the designer behind the brand, creates pieces of a bold, subtle nature. From 18k gold to oxidized sterling silver, a variety of materials and treatments are used to grant each piece its edgy, elegant look.
Yoster’s unique collection presents minimal, contemporary designs, and incorporates a number of statement pieces, designed to equally adorn a casual appearance or a dressed-up look. The natural form and presence of the materials, combined with the designer’s aim to create jewelry that is to eventually be passed on, comprise a collection within which Amar manages to maintain her wished-for dialogue between material and spirit – each piece is a timeless, wearable sculpture.
Amar’s work has been included in several exhibitions, among them the Israeli Jewelry Art Biennale at the Eretz Israel Museum.
