the yael + tal jewelry design studio of tel aviv, israel, founded in 2011, specializes in the production of diminutive

scenes.  the designers’ first collection, ‘snapshot’, features miniature figures resting or leaning on benches or swings. each piece is seemingly paused in a precise moment in time, the figures confined to a small, framed space. true to their photographic influence, the designers carry out the collection in a highly-detailed and preserved manner. from charm to chain, every work is crafted by the artists from silver or gold. yael and tal create a frozen appreciations of scenes often overlooked due to their mundane nature– the designers celebrate the beauty of the every-day in ‘snapshot’.
