About Itay Yona

Originally from Israel, Itay found his inspiration to create in the beauty and purity of gemstones. Now a jewelry designer for over 18 years, he has refined his natural talent for working with precious and semi-precious stones and mastered the painstakingly delicate art of wire wrapping to stunning results. His passion for color and shape and his dedicated craftsmanship imbue each one of his pieces with an elegance that is both earthy and seductive.
Itay is a long time resident of Los Angeles but continues to be inspired by the variety of ethnic influences he experienced growing up in the Mediterranean. He finds great satisfaction in handcrafting each one of his pieces, and believes that beauty should always be a part of everyday life.
