Mosheh Oved’s first animal rings were created during the bombing raids of London during the Second World War. During one of these raids, his wife Sah Oved observed how Mosheh’s hands were trembling. Whilst sheltering in the basement of their Bloomsbury shop, Cameo Corner, she would give him some modelling wax to steady his hands, and that is when the series of animal rings began.
