Kohenet Ketzirah haMa'agelet
Modern amulet maker specializing in Jewish amulets, talismans, totems, shiviti, and segulot.
This is My Story
My name is Ketzirah haMa’agelet (the Circle Maker), and I explore and create of connections that transform how we — you and me — see the world and be in the world. My work manifests, primarily, in the form of amulets (kameot), shrines, shiviti, segulot, talismans, and personal totems.
I am a modern day amulet maker, who unearths fragments from a forgotten future™, by exploring the history of amulets and material religion in Judaism and other faith traditions from around the world.
Drawing on the long history of amulets in Jewish and near-Eastern history and women weavers, I primarily create amulets, shrines, travel altars, shiviti, segulot, and occasionally other types of art and devotional objects like mizrach (eastern wall markers) and challah covers.
