The Bat Ami Collection “Wearable Art”
Bat Ami’s innovative jewellery line celebrates style, design and exquisite craftsmanship. Their three generations of family designers employ methods that range from the traditional to the most contemporary. Bat Ami designs use cutting edge technologies as well as innovative design methods to create jewellery, which in addition to being decorative and flattering, can best be described as “wearable art.”
In a world where “hand-made” may be irrelevant, they are proud to maintain a family tradition of quality craftsmanship at their own factory in Tel Aviv, where they incorporate sophisticated 3D technologies to fashion an affordable, original and comfortable collection of pure silver Electroformed jewellery, catering to all tastes and ages.
Electroforming lends itself to the creation of strikingly original pure silver designs, so lightweight that size becomes irrelevant and textures are unlimited. The silver, organically shaped forms are enhanced with the additions of pearls and many include natural touches of leather.
Bat Ami started in the 1960’s, when Bat Ami, an artist and independent family woman, turned an artistic passion into a flourishing business. Her debut collection was a personal interpretation of the traditional ‘filigree’ that she learnt from an old Yemenite jeweller. Her unique style and flair soon won international acclaim as part of the evolving fusion of traditional and contemporary in the Israeli fashion scene.
In the 1970’s Bat Ami went on to pioneer the Electroforming technique, previously only of academic interest and designed freeform lightweight pure silver jewellery with complex unique shapes, turning this previously science-only application into a renowned sophisticated contemporary art form known worldwide as “Israeli Silver”.
The ethos of the Bat Ami label, under the management of Bat Ami’s daughters, Einat Kartin and Lilach Pery is one of imagination, inspiration and social responsibility.
Over the past twenty years, both creative designers continue to expand the Bat Ami brand further by developing new electroforming techniques. Their distinctive designs and modern sensibility of fashion along with uncompromising production standards, have turned the Bat Ami brand into the stable establishment it is today.
To assure quality and cost, the Bat-Ami line is all hand-crafted in Israel at the company’s own factory which is a reflection of the diversity of Israeli society. We are a mostly female business that is proud to support the empowerment of women and promote coexistence between all parts of Israeli and Palestinian society.
Bat Ami’s production values assure quality, durability as well as individuality in every piece. Our designs are constantly evolving and innovating to complement the changing trends and our continuing success is a testament to the combination of the artistic talented inspiration of each of our designer’s own unique style.
Today the Bat Ami collection is available in over 22 countries worldwide and is regularly featured at the top international jewellery shows and in fashion magazines.
During the Electroforming process, pure silver is electrically layered over a resin prepared hand-made form to create a unique organic piece without the heavy weight and cost typical with conventional solid silver jewellery. The resin inside every item helps prevent denting of the soft pure silver.
