I am the third generation of a Jerusalem family of craftsmen. My Workshop specializes in Judaic works of art that are treasured in the collections of connoisseurs around the world.

The artistic and technological developments in Judaic art have taken generations to refine. This high standard of excellence is achieved by housing Master of Design, metalwork and engineering under one roof. A unique workshop environment allows for the Swed trademark of creating pieces that are built part-by-part. Such a unique design allows for easy cleaning, polishing and rhodium plating, which is another Swed innovation.

I am determined to create Judaica that will last forever, like treasured heirlooms. What separates Swed Masters Workshop from every other silversmith worldwide is the fact that others who are in this profession, are producing their pieces with one or two people who though may be skilled in different fields, their work cannot compare nor accomplish what a unique select team of the highest level of master designers.

Our achievement has been to invent this new process in the ancient art of silversmithing, where not one part of the piece is soldered, but all is assembled according to an exact engineering technique. This process has given the Workshop a worldwide reputation for precision and quality and allows us to give a lifetime guarantee for every one of our pieces – each designed to be cherished and handed down from generation to generation.

Swed Masters Workshop is also unique in its Limited Edition policy. Even though throughout the years, the select clientele continues to grow, the classic limited edition quantity of 65 pieces remains the same and, each piece is signed and numbered accordingly. The limited-edition designs are offered for consideration to an exclusive group of a few hundred families around the world. The pieces, created by commission only, are numbered, signed by the artist and personalized with the name of the client.

Please consider this a personal invitation to visit our Workshop across the street from the King David Hotel the next time you are in Jerusalem. You are also welcome to visit our Manhattan location.
