This started a snowball of ideas and designs to primarily use excess materials from the shrugs I was making as a base for new designs. The fabrics i choose for their colorfulness, soft touch and the happy feeling they exude.

And so my business slowly developed from shrugs to necklaces, headbands, jewelry and more!

I design and sell my products from my studio-store in Jerusalem in a cool designers complex and in stores across Israel and in the USA.
