YEHUDA TASSA began to work in Yemenite Filigree at the age of six. Taught by his father, a well-known jeweler in Yemen, he worked in the family jewelry business for sixteen years. Yehuda revitalized his ‘lost art’ recently and began prolifically producing both ancient and modern filigree designs.
He creates jewelry and teaches at several locations in Northern California, incorporating both ancient and modern tools and techniques into his filigree and granulation workshops.
Yehuda's filigree and granulation work can be purchased at the sales events listed on this site, and in the future his jewelry may be purchased on this site.
Yehuda's " Basic Yemenite Filigree" DVD , and "Advanced Yemenite Filigree with Yehuda Tassa: The Flower Design" are both available for purchase
Yehuda Tassa also gives lectures to local jewelry organizations on the traditions and historical aspects of authentic Yemenite filigree. You may contact him via his webform to arrange for a lecture.
