To some, the jewelry pieces created by Michal Taharlev might look like a modern take on tribal accessories. They feature bold pieces of metal and tassel-like thread that gives them this impression. What makes Michal Taharlev's designs noteworthy, however, is where he found these materials, particularly the metal. They were salvaged from a factory.

Based in Tel Aviv, Israel, Michal Taharlev is an artist first and foremost, hence the unique composition of each jewelry design. According to Design Milk, "Each necklace is hand woven on a loom with segments of copper, brass, stainless steel, and aluminum woven together with thread." Since the metal pieces are held in place by the black threads, there is no need for other sorts of fasteners.
