I am picking up where I left off 10 years ago before having
children. I had a few courses under my belt but find it has all come
back pretty easily. Finding contacts in Prague where I have just
moved to is proving rather difficult, so if anyone out there knows
anyone here, I’d love to get in touc h.

Ilan Zvolony
Kfar Masarik, Israel

Shalom - I am glad to join you here. It seems all my life I have been
in mechanical positions mainly in liquid carton producing and then
for my retirement I looked for something to learn that I’ll be able
to do from home, that will talk to my soul, and yet use my technical
abilities… So I learnt two years at Wizo Institue for the arts
Jewellery. (my cousin here is reminding me that actually there has
never been a year that I have not taken part in one creative medium
or another, mainly in the plastic arts; clay sculpture and glass
work… that may be true…) Jewellery making is a nice job ad I have
many samples of what I have done usually I do not like to sell the
original one and for sure I can make pictures and send to the Orchid
community if you’d like to see What I like very much to get from this
group is new components, tools, special techniques and designs and
then maybe I will also be able to share with you as well my findings
I live in a Kibbutz in Israel all my life I am 68 years old, married,
with two young grand children and two children and for now it is more
than enough :-)) kibbutz life is different than regular city/village
life we work without salary and with a lot of group interaction
Although I am a pensioner, i.e. retired, I still work in our factory
and am sent off to assist and solve technical matters all over the
world, from Europe to China regularly.

Thank you
Lehitraot (see you again)
