Galit Rosenblum – Jewelry School

At Galit’s school each student is treated as a regular goldsmith right from the start; each work station is in fact a small fully accessorized studio. The mentor herself may be approached at the central table. Most students have no previous background and learn from Galit that classic gold and silver crafting is in fact the combination of metals and not necessarily jewelry making: “it is the ability to give life to a metal plate and a cord. It is fascinating

“As soon as I experienced Jewelry making, six years ago, it became clear to me that this is what I should be doing. I gave in my notice the very next day and left my job in human resources”. This is how Galit Rosenblum, owner of the Jewelry school adjacent to the Western Galilee College, describes her first meeting with the art of gold and silver crafting that changed her life. “I decided that this is it. I am changing direction. I went to Shenkar to study and I keep updating myself constantly.”
After a period in which she created Jewelry for sales, a friend asked Galit to teach her. “I enjoyed it so much”, Galit recalls, “it suits me on a personal level. As a teacher you are always required to be one step ahead of your students. That is already a different kind of responsibility.” And the rest is history.

Up until two years ago Galit taught at home. The transition to the current building, a priceless location near the Western Galilee College, has made the transformation in her life complete. At Galit’s school each student is treated as a regular goldsmith right from the start; each work station is in fact a small fully accessorized studio. The mentor herself may be approached at the central table. Most students have no previous background and learn from Galit that classic gold and silver crafting is in fact the combination of metals and not necessarily jewelry making: “it is the ability to give life to a metal plate and a cord. It is fascinating.””
In addition to the on-going courses, requiring a minimum of ten meetings, three hours each, Galit also offers a one-time three hour long workshop, for the creation of a personal jewel: “groups, families, children aged eight and older. Anyone who wants to, can come and leave with their own jewel. And still, it is not the jewel that matters as much as the process itself; the way.”
An important thing that Galit discovered is that even though she has no therapeutic background, the idea of giving life to a still object (“‘making’ in the meaning of ‘creating’) causes people to feel relieved or allows their emotions to overflow: “It can come to a student asking me for a hug during work. It is amazing.” We agree.
