About

Welcome to Sigalit’s shop on Etsy, where one of a kind handmade jewelry is created for YOU : http://www.etsy.com/shop/SigalitAlcalai
I have graduated the Academy of Fine Arts in Israel and the Technological Jewelry Institute of Israel. In the first years following my graduation, I worked in the textile and fashion industry as one of Israel’s leading designers for children's clothing.

For the past 14 years, I have devoted my work mainly to the design and realization of jewelry pieces. The inspiration for my pieces is derived from the Israeli landscape with its intensity of colors and light, combined with a touch of my deep understanding of contemporary textile and fashion trends.
My pieces, eclectic but modern, are made with a love for the beauty that can be achieved by combining metals and layering with texture, colors and materials…

I have graduated the Academy of Fine Arts in Israel and the Technological Jewelry Institute of Israel. In the first years following my graduation, I worked in the textile and fashion industry as one of Israel’s leading designers for children's clothing.

For the past 14 years, I have devoted my work mainly to the design and realization of jewelry pieces. The inspiration for my pieces is derived from the Israeli landscape with its intensity of colors and light, combined with a touch of my deep understanding of contemporary textile and fashion trends.
My pieces, eclectic but modern, are made with a love for the beauty that can be achieved by combining metals and layering with texture, colors and materials.

I am inspired by everything around me and carry hundreds of ideas around in my head most of the time.

The pieces are a one of a kind, as they are made in small quantities, while each piece is individually handcrafted.

In my work I use a diversity of materials, such as sterling silver, gold plated 18k - 24K, gold filled, soft glass, polymer clay, resin and Swarovski crystals. My pieces are colorful and lightweight, and they are available in a variety of shapes and colors.

I began making glass beads in 2009 and LOVE IT - glass is my new love!

I make all my beads and cabochons from Moretti or Bullseye glass. They are fully cleaned and kiln-annealed for durability.

I am currently working in my studio in Jaffa. Jaffa is a very old city near Tel Aviv, Israel, where I live with my dear husband Leon who cooks for us - he is a great chef - and my two sons, Michael and Amit, who are both musicians. It is a very happy life!

If you are visiting Israel, I display and sell my work at "Nahalat-Binyamin" in Tel Aviv, the biggest arts and crafts market in Israel (open on Tuesdays and Fridays, during the day).

Note: Due to the fact that all items are handmade, there may be slight differences in color shading and design."

NO two pieces created are exactly the same. Each piece is UNIQUE, DISTINCT and ONE OF A KIND.
My studio is pet- and smoke-free!

Thanks for looking!
