‘My name is Ben Proctor, I am 36 years old. I was born in London UK and moved to Israel when I was 6 years old. I am married and have 3 children.
From an early age I had a strong connection to gemstones. This fascination became a hobby, I collected these rare and beautiful gemstones, and within time my collection grew tremendously. I still remember the first gemstone I received.
I always had a connection and interest in art and design; enjoying black and white photography, drawing, and the aesthetics of sushi making. While brainstorming what to study the idea of jewelry making came up. After a few lessons at a local goldsmith school I was immediately hooked and knew this is what I wanted to do.
In 2006 I started to study jewelry design at “Shenkar” College of Engineering and Design in Israel. I graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Design (B.Des). After college I gained experience with a few local and international jewelry companies, however my dream was to have my own brand and create jewelry independently.’
What made you start your business?
It all started when I was 6 years old… I used to go with my mum to an alternative medicine shop where they sold all sorts of things, between them – gemstones and crystals. For some reason I had some sort of connection to these stones, and I just had to have one every visit to that shop. Within time, my collection of gems grew and grew, up until today. Today I have quite an impressive collection. Later on did I find out that when my mum and dad were younger, they used to buy and sell antique jewelry in London’s antique markets, so I guess it’s in my blood.
I have created my brand – Benati. The name comes from my name: Ben, and my wife’s name: Anat. Under this brand I bring to life all my idea’s and creations. Designing and making jewelry is my passion!
