Ascopa is repurposing the ancient roman glass material to handcraft jewelry with history

Ascopa was founded by Ika and Rami, Ascopa means “threshold stone” in Aramaic. For Ika and Rami, the name marked their return to Israel. Created in a handcraft  process, the allure of the Ascopa jewelry  is their asymmetry. To the Ascopa brand, beauty is found in the individuality caused by imperfections.

Ascopa creates jewelry using Roman glass fragments, an ancient material that has existed for over 2000 years. Roman glass can only be found in the Middle East, making the material rare and full of history. Ika and Rami want to keep the tradition and history of Roman glass alive, repurposing the material, giving it a new life. 

As the primary material in use, Ascopa has mastered the art of Roman glass. Ascopa is able to alter the shape, size, and color of the glass to fit whichever jewellry they are working on.
