I can't say enough about this gorgeous necklace. The color choices and fabrics are awesome and the coordinating crystals make even more beautiful. A very stunning statement piece that I will wear with joy. Thanks so much Hagar!

About

Gilgulim designer fiber jewelry for daring women

Gilgulim is rolling, metamorphosis and transfiguration

And yes, this is exactly what I Do; Roll beads to create alternative fiber jewelry out of metamorphosed materials.

But when and where did it start?

It is hard to tell!

Was it the premature baby who was put in the middle of a harsh winter in a shoe box filled with cotton wool that made a cotton lover out of me?

Was it my love for Mother Nature embedded in me in the green beauty of the Israeli Galilee?

Was it the cosmopolite and colorful Jerusalem of my teens that taught me about cultures, textiles, oriental jewels, textures and smells?

Was it my grandma's rooms filled with lace, buttons, ribbons, night gowns and hats brought all the way from Germany?

Was it my very early need to express myself through the way I am dressed?

Or was it my huge love for stories? Textiles do tell stories especially women's stories and history.

All in all, I became a textile designer when the world of Israeli textiles collapsed but kept searching the world of design as a handbag buyer.

Only when my eldest daughters left home I felt the need for a room of my own physically, mentally and creatively.
Searching the Brussels's flea-market I found a stack of neckties and right away I knew this was to become my future raw material for fiber jewels. It took me another year to invent and perfect my line of alternative fabric jewels and to open Gilgulim shop on ETSY.

Another year passed and I left my day job to become a full time jeweler and a searcher for new ways to express women's inner feelings in the way they dress up.

My present fiber jewels are made of different textiles I collect or buy around the world including reclaimed cloths I find in my surrounding.
The fabrics are washed, ironed and cut into the right straps and rolled into beads. The beads are carefully hand stitched with strong though hardly seen stitches. No glue is used during the process and the final product is soft to the skin, very light and colorful.

My unique jewels are perfect for women who feel the need to express themselves by the way they dress up, who want to escape mass production and curate a very personal wardrobe for themselves without feeling weird. For those of you who feel they are entitled to have a look of your own.

One of the great benefits I have through my ETSY shop is the contact with my customers and co sellers on the site. I believe in providing honest excellent service to my clients (Please consult Gilgulim feedback list http://www.etsy.com/people/Hagarae/feedback) and as an active member of this wonderful community in knowledge sharing, supporting co sellers, and giving assistance to new shop owners.

So if you are one of the searching soles linked to me by an invisible string of truth, human contact and beauty seeking, just bear in mind that having a room/shop/look of one's own is a huge challenge but the results are so satisfactory.

ARE YOU?

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Custom and personalized orders
I make custom orders with pleasure!
Imagine you have a dress you love and cannot wear any more or an old necktie of someone you loved and is no longer with us.
I create fiber necklaces out of these textiles that will remain with you as a souvenir of times and people long gone.
Furthermore, I will create a special jewel that will be perfect with a chosen dress or outfit for a special event.
Just dream it and I will make it for you.

Please note that Gilgulim jewelry are extra light and might be a perfect solutions for you ladies who stopped wearing any necklaces because you find it hard to wear anything heavier than a scarf round your necks.

If you are among women who are allergic to metals, metal free jew

Sizing details

In most cases I can adjust the fiber jewelry to different sizes.
Before you make a purchase please measure your neck or another necklace which is suitable for you. Please make sure the size is correct.
If any changes are needed, do not hesitate to convo me and I will make the adjustments so it suits you perfectly!

Care instructions

The fiber beads are very sustainable even though they are made of textiles.
All beads are hand stitched out of top quality fabrics and Gilgulim necklaces are made to last!

If by any chance you need to wash your necklace (which doesn't happen very frequently) wash the necklace in tepid water using hand-wash detergent and dry thoroughly before using it again.

Dropping your necklace into a tomato soup or bleach is highly recommended!

Gift wrapping and packaging

Gilgulim fiber jewelry are always wrapped in gift wrapping and posted in appropriate protective envelopes.

Since wrapping is part of Gilgulim creative procedure, I do not publish one gift wrapping for all jewelry but create a special gift wrapping for each customer. Some of the materials are handmade or hand painted and decorations are made of textiles and paper out of Gilgulim private collection.
Let me always surprise you!
