Baptized Jewelry Story
Leshem Simon, a 4th generation jewelry designer, apprenticed with his mother from an early age, where he acquired the skill, passion and love for handcrafted fine-jewelry. Growing up in the north of Israel, less than an hour from the Jordan River, he visited it often since childhood and acquired a deep admiration for it- both for its serene nature and as its holy significance for Christians, Jews and Muslims alike.
Inspired by the sacred waters of the Jordan River, the transcendent experience of witnessing countless baptisms, and the exquisite jewelry worn by its visitors, Leshem yearned to express his overwhelming sentiment for this experience.
And so, after 3 decades from his first visit, to the enchanting river running through the Sea of Galilee, where John the Baptist baptized Jesus, his Drops of Faith Collection was born.
