Hamsa in open circle made from sterling silver. Designed by Michael Bromberg.
Born in the City of Odessa, Ukraine, Michael Bromberg earned his masters degree in mechanical engineering at the Odessa University and worked as a production engineer in a machine plant for several years. But Michael was at heart an artist, and jewelry design and jewelry making were his passion. Sadly, in the former Soviet Union possession of precious metals in any but the smallest quantities was illegal. A designer could work for the government, producing approved traditional designs in a state jewelry plant, but to pursue his art independently would risk imprisonment.
After emigrating to the USA, Michael founded Danco Gallery, a jewelry design company with a retail jewelry store in Greenwich Village, New York City. There he was able to pursue his jewelry-designing career.He designed and hand-crafted one of a kind museum reproductions for such customers as H. Stern Jewelers and The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
