"They say 'there's nothing new under the sun,' but there are always thousands of ways to create a piece to renew it."
"For as long as I can remember, I have always been keen on handicrafts, especially jewelry, which I started making when I was a teen. I was born in Israel and traveled through Africa and America, always challenging myself to make different designs with what I found in the different countries I visited, such as wires, seeds, gems, bamboo, ceramic, and bone amongst others.
"In 1995 I arrived in Mexico and became enthralled by the quantity, quality and variety of artesanias. I traveled up and down the country until someone told me about Taxco, describing it to me as the 'jewelry capital of the world.' When I came and discovered their art school, I just knew this was the place for me!
"I enrolled in Mexico's renowned National University (UNAM) where I learned about design, drawing, art history, lapidating, engraving, photography and of course, jewelry-making. By the time I finished in 1999 I felt I had gained a solid foundation that has allowed me to develop my own style and design. My collections have been well-received throughout Mexico.
"As form of expression, through jewelry I am able share what I observe, what I think and what I experience. When I'm designing I search for beauty, aesthetics and elegance. I look for a way to leave my personal mark.
"My favorite themes include contrasts, textures, contemporary designs and geometry. I enjoy transforming the old into the new. They say 'there's nothing new under the sun,' but there are always thousands of ways to create a piece to renew it."
I purchased the pendant/earrings of Sinuous and earrings/ring of Hummingbird Mystique and was very impressed with all. Thank you so much for the unique pieces of art! Your work is remarkable.
I just received the beautiful obsidian and citrine earrings which I ordered. They are even more stunning than pictured! Thank you so much!
I just received my 'Sinuous"" necklace and it is so beautiful!! I can't wait to show it off! Thank you for making such a beautiful peace of jewelry.

Gracias Alon for the Obsidian cufflinks, 'Night Magic'. I purchased them as a gift upon returning from trip to Mexico last year. The craftsmanship is so rich and pure.
I have been following this artist for some time and have purchased several of his pieces at a wonderful local jeweler. I was so pleased to see that he is a member of your group. His pieces are distinct, simple, but classy! Love my earrings that I got from NOVICA- I have been searching some time for a pair of stand out silver earrings - it has an 18 K gold piece that adds uniqueness to the piece.
What a funky artist is Alon Diller. I purchased the earrings 'Aztec Hummingbirds'. I love these beautiful birds and Alon really captures the spirit of his subject. For handmade jewellery, the accuracy and level of detail is amazing. The quality of materials and workmanship is excellent. The hook fastenings are a sensible length and feel secure in the ears, so I don't feel worried about losing an earring. Alon's work is really eye-catching, but I don't think it's difficult to wear at all - it doesn't look over the top. Just cool and unique!
Just got the ring 'Always Azure' today from mail. The ring is so beautiful with a lovely box / packing. Thanks a lot for making this wondeful artwork.
Hello Alon, Just wanted to let you know that the ring I purchased for my daughter for Christmas arrived and is absolutely beautiful. It was a huge hit and my daughter never takes it off! Thank you, you make truly amazing pieces. (Sorry for late feedback, I didn't realise I could leave feedback.) Kindest regards, Tracey
Hi Alon, I just received my pendant "" Loves Glow "".WOW is all I can think to say,it is beautiful.I can tell you are not just a jewellery maker,you are an artist. It was also really fast getting here,It took just four working days to get here to Western Australia.The packaging was gorgeous also,I love the little jug attached to the wrapping,that will be going in my special cabinet. I've been looking at other items on your web site,so I will definately be back. Thanks again,I will be recommending to others in this part of the world. Kim Watson Australia
Mr. Diller, I want to thank you so much for the extremely beautiful and unique earrings. VERY FINE work. The silver is polsihed to perfection and the black obsidian also in tip-top condition. And the design you created, with the citrine ""dewdrops"", is so original and elegant. Definitely not something you see every day and that is why they caught my eye online. And, in person, I love them even more. Very happy with this purchase. Much gratitude!
The design and craftsmanship of the Equilibrium earrings are beautiful.

'Taxco Wildflower' The earrings are lovely. I have ordered another pair created by Mr. Diller. After seeing the fine craftsmanship for 'Taxco Wildflower' I am eager for the other pair to arrive.
I bought Silver button earrings, 'Taxco Wildflower' and Turquoise dangle earrings, 'Taxco at Dusk' The earrings are lovely and well crafted. I would buy from Mr. Diller again.
Received my peridot band ring Taxco Dawn today. Love it! Peridot is my birthstone and when I saw it, I just had to buy it. It's beautiful! Thank you so much!
I bought Mr. Diller's earrings, ""Dewdrop"", which are citrine, obsidian, and silver. Not only are they my favorite earrings, but I receive so many compliments on them! They are perfectly balanced, with lovely stones and incredible silver work. Thank you for your beautiful designs--I hope someday soon to buy another of your beautiful creations.

I bought the ""Moon Over Taxco"" cocktail ring about a year ago. I immediately loved it when it arrived and it continues to be one of my favorite pieces in my jewelry wardrobe.
The silver flower earrings with the copper middle are simply beautiful. I cant stop looking at them. And they are comfortable to wear, which is important as I never plan to take them off. Thank you.

I've admired your silver and amethyst earrings ""Mischief"" for some time and finally ordered them. Now that I have them I can't understand why I hesitated, they are lovely. The earrings are actually even prettier than in the photographs and are beautifully made. I've been wearing them a lot and have received many compliments. Most of all I love them. Thank you very much Alon.
Mr Diller...I am a huge fan of your creations!!! I purchased the sterling silver hummingbird necklace for my sister. She loves the little creatures, and feeds hundreds of them in her backyard. She just loved it...it is just so pretty and perfect!! ( I would love to have it for myself too) Thank you so much. Carrie Peoples
I wanted a very special gift for my grandson's graduation from High School and found this artist and his work. The silver ""Sierra"" cufflinks I ordered are perfect. They are exquisite, with amazing workmanship and elegance. This gift reflects the excellence adequate to reward our grandson's achievements. Thank you, Mr. Diller. You are truly an extraordinary artist.
I purchased the hummingbird necklace and it arrived this week. I love it! It is just right -- enough to be seen but not overwhelming. Just a lovely little piece that I am looking forward to enjoying often!
I just received Jazz earrings that I ordered for my daughter; she plays a trumpet in the jazz band. The earing's are beautiful. I know she will love them. Thank you. Audra Anderson.

I bought the ""Sands of Cuyutlan"" ring for my husband when we did our vow renewal in Mexico. He loves it. I love it. It will be a reminder of all the journeys we take together and the love we share. Thank you.
