Yemenite Hand-Filigree Silver “Queen Elizabeth” Candlesticks


In November 2008, when he was granted honorary knighthood by Queen Elizabeth II, Israeli President Shimon Peres presented the Queen with a pair of handcrafted sterling silver candlesticks designed by Ben-Zion David in the shape of a pomegranate crown and elaborately decorated with traditional Yemenite filigree work. These handmade replicas are compact and convenient for traveling with filigree crown and legs all in Yemenite motif.

All of Ben-Zion's judaica is handmade from sterling silver. The artist prepares the silver threads himself, interweaving them to the left and to the right in order to achieve that special and unique braided effect. Ben-Zion explains: “My filigree judaica is made using a very old technique that is disappearing from our world. Creating a masterpiece requires attention to fine details, great imagination and of course, patience.”
