Studio Baladi

Today I’m featuring the work of Laliv Shalev, a talented jewellery designer based in Tel Aviv. Laliv started off in the field of industrial design but found she was spending too much time behind a computer. So she began taking jewellery design classes and started Studio Baladi. Just two years later Laliv now does what she loves full time.

The Meaning of the word “Baladi” is: Locally, From the ground, Untouched. This is what guides the lines and textures of Laliv’s work. Her jewellery has a beautiful, organic feel with a contemporary simplicity to it.

Laliv custom made a Cluster ring for me, which is absolutely stunning and I couldn’t resist a pair of her cute Plus sign earrings either.

I asked Laliv to share a few insights with us…

When did you start Studio Baladi?
About 2 years ago, the idea cooked in my head for a long time until I found the courage to do it, up until then I worked as a Industrial designer.

Which three words sum you up?
I’m still searching..

Where do you find inspiration?
Mostly in my mistakes, while working..

The favorite part of your jobโ€ฆ
Being creative, the communication with customers from all over the world, being my own boss…
I’m currently in the stage of moving the studio from my living room to a studio space in Tel Aviv and it’s very exiting.

Your perfect dayโ€ฆ
On the beach. definitely.

Whatโ€™s on your wish list?
I always said that if I win the lottery I would travel around the world chasing my favorite musicians wherever they tour. My next show has to be Neil Young.. but this wish list is long… Now I need to start buying lottery tickets ๐Ÿ™‚
