Hila participated in a student exchange program at Trier University of Applied Sciences with their gemstone and jewellery department, for Fine art degree in Idar-Oberstein, Germany. Her time there was a big influence when it came to using art to create her jewellery pieces. She would seek materials and forms that maintain a dialogue between culture and material.
Also, Hila grew up in the Negev Desert. Living next to a desert landscape influenced and inspired her when it came to creating her identity as an artist. The roughness, textures and colours drive her when she designs.
Hila’s jewellery brand Yoster is a blend of preciseness, power and emotion. Each piece is contemporary yet timeless. Her vision was to create jewellery that stands as a sculpture you connect to, collect and keep.
