Gittit Szwarc, the designer behind Knobbly Studio, is a former Capoeira teacher with a background in martial arts and movement. Gittit’s jewelry making skills are self-taught. 

The aspect that drives her interest in jewelry is the way it interacts with the human form. When creating a new piece she tries to ask, what will it look like to someone looking at the wearer from an angle? How will it move when she moves? How does it relate to the natural lines of her face, collarbone, torso?

Her light-filled studio is located in the Noga district in Jaffa, Israel. All items are handmade in the studio by her team from locally sourced materials.
