Since both had the desire and need to learn and understand every field they decided to take a course with the jewelry design department. The finale project in that course had received lots of attention and enthusiasm among other student, wanted to purchase & wear the jewels they made. At that point, the thought about integrating the knowledge gained in the design and production of both fields, the jewelry with the industrial, opened a new way for them .After working for well known industrial design studios, designing , toys & electronics & Cars , the time finally came to share their own creative vision - it was the realization of a dream for them both.
