Contour is a handmade jewelry label founded by Lior Shulak Hai & Galit Barak. Focusing on clean geometric design, and taking inspiration from city landscapes and architecture, the jewelry integrates clean and minimal elements with a fresh approach. All the jewelry is handmade at the studio in Tel Aviv with attention to maintaining the best quality.
Lior Shulak Hai graduated with honors from the Jewelry Design Department in Shenkar College in 2013. During her studies, she interned at Marks & Spencer, London. In July 2014 she was a finalist at ITS (International Talent Support) competition, and won the first prize with her graduate collection “Signs of Fiction”. Galit Barak also graduated in 2013 from the Jewelry Design Department in Shenkar College. During her studies, she interned at Meller, London. Galit took part in a contemporary jewelry exhibits worldwide, including Joya Barcelona, and Beijing International Jewelry Art Biennial.
After a year they collaborated on various projects with their separate labels, they decided to merge the two to one and established CONTOUR in 2015. ASSEMBLAGE is a fashion jewelry collection by CONTOUR. The inspiration came from a visual research Galit & Lior did about conceptual architecture, alongside working with paper and trying to find an interesting folding lines and textures. In the design process, they wanted to emphasize the connection between all the elements in the piece in purpose to create an interesting and unique new surfaces and compositions. The designers wanted to create a precise graphic language and stretch a line between the commercial and the conceptual jewelry.
