Louis' Banner

Louis Farkovitz designs and creates custom-made jewelry and other fine art objects for private clients. Louis' work is characterized by the use of lavish materials.

"I want my pieces to give you a sense of abundance, something you can feel and touch as well as see. I have a special feeling for gold, which I think is like magic, and I also enjoy working with other precious metals."

Louis was born in New York in 1957, after his parents fled the 1956 Hungarian Revolution. As the child of Holocaust survivors, Louis developed an appreciation for his Jewish heritage.  He has applied his art to creating fine pieces of Judaica as a way of expressing his Jewish experience, while making a proud statement of American Judaica. His beautiful sacred objects, all made of sterling silver, include Mezzuzot, Menorahs, and other works of ritual art.

Louis began his training as a jeweler in 1973, upon returning from a 3-year stay in Israel. Before establishing his own studio, he worked as a production jeweler for various designer manufacturers in Manhattans jewelry district, and in Jerusalem.

 Louis is currently employed in the product development department with a  major jewelry designer/manufacturer.

Louis has created high-quality jewelry for private clients for many years. He has developed a series of classic hand-fabricated pieces, and most pieces are custom-made. Louis has incorporated a wide range of unusual work including one-of-a-kind silver candelabras that burn olive oil; an original Zodiac collection; belt buckles; lighters; fountain pen holders; customized adornments for guitars, as well as silver and gold guitar pics; fanciful miniature figurines; and a line of corporate products that include awards, jewelry, and key chains.

"Each piece I design is hand-made, and signed with the hand logo which in many cultures represents good fortune and a safe haven from the evil eye.  Each piece could be considered a good luck charm.  I hope they will be cherished as works of art, that will last forever and grow in value over generations."
