Rafael Alfandary was an emigrant to Toronto Ontario, Canada from Israel in 1970. He set up shop in his basement and started production on the kinectic designs made of hammered brass or copper and bezel set with natural stone or glass cabachons His work is very recognizable and offered for sale are some of his most popular and striking styles. The chains on the large necklaces are as elaborate as the pendants themselves and balance it with an aesthetic symmetry.
Margaret Trudeau wore one of his necklaces to the opening of Parliament.  He created jewelry for Lorne Green, Liberace, Muhammad Ali, Redd Foxx and Paul Anka. He worked closely with Marilyn Brooks, designing pieces to complement her clothing line and participating in her major fashion shows. He branched out into sculpture and home accessories, and he introduced silver and semi-precious stones into his repertoire. By the late 1970s, Rafael had sold close to a million pieces of his trendy, fashion-forward jewelry. Today, many of those pieces are professionally collected and the market for vintage Rafael continues to
grow.
