Beit Doqo Development Society

The Beit Doqo Development Society started out making food products but quickly grew to include hand carved brass jewelry in order to accommodate the growing number of women participating in this wonderful income-generating project. The jewelry is hand carved from brass plates and typically draws from traditional motifs, like the Palestinian dress, or thob, with the key that symbolizes the Palestinian right of return.

Zaytouna Jewelry

These gorgeous designs from Nadira Alaraj in partnership with the Kattan family silversmiths are each unique pieces. After harvesting Roman olive leaves from Bethlehem, they cast them to create unique olive leaf molds that are filled with sterling silver. Every single silver leaf is individually formed from a mold that is only used once, rendering unique, one-of-a-kind leaves from the ancient trees of Bethlehem. All connector pieces and wires as well as bands are also hand crafted by the talented father and son silversmiths.

The wood is carved bead by bead in Bethlehem, then polished and oiled with cold pressed, extra virgin, organic olive oil and strung with beads that are hand crocheted by women in the village of Deir Ghassaneh.
