Megemeria means Genesis in Amharic the language of the Jewish immigrants from Ethiopia. Isaac and Orna Yvel who were designing and producing an extensive line of jewelry in Jerusalem started a pro-bono School of Jewelers offering professional training and advancement as well as employment opportunities‚ providing those immigrants with knowledge for life and facilitating their social and professional integration into Israeli society. In the school the young people‚ new to Israel and the western world‚ found a way of living allowing them to express themselves and integrate their own ethnic experience into modern life. The unique Megemeria collection that is inspired by the immigrants’ past and future includes meaningful pieces of contemporary jewelry from pendants to earrings and bracelets made of 24K gold-plated brass. Each piece of Ethiopian jewelry reflects and expresses ancient craftsmanship given a contemporary interpretation. Many designs incorporate inscriptions in native Amharic with messages like: Forever‚ love‚ or friendship that upgrades this unique jewelry into a meaningful and personal gift. The Megemeria‚ Ethiopian Jewelry‚ are unique and will catch the eye when- and wherever the will be worn. And remember that by buying the outstanding jewelry you assist the absorption of the new immigrants.
