My City: Tel Aviv, Israel with Leetal Kalmanson of LK Designs
July 05 2015
Our first glimpse into Israel's vibrant, 24 hour city was with another one of our favorite Israeli jewelry designers, Irit Goffer Sasson of AMARO.
Now we explore Tel Aviv through the eyes of another talented designer from the same city, Leetal Kalmanson of LK Designs. To have both of these designers participate in our Summer Travel Series is more than a dream, and a testament to their interest and commitment to shops like mine!
Enjoy a glimpse into Leetal's Tel Aviv!
