All of the individual pieces that make up the 3D layers of artwork are cut out by hand using an exacto knife. All of the details are cut out of the top-layer cutout sheets and are matched up with the accompanying imagery on the bottom-layer boards that are signed and numbered. The pieces are also glued slightly off-center to emphasize the 3D effect. Once glued, each piece of artwork takes twenty-four hours to cure completely. After the artwork is made 3D, it is hand-embellished using acrylic paint glitter and Swarovski crystals. According to Charles Fazzino, “the use of the glitter came about because I needed something to cover up my cutting mistakes. I started using it and it added some glitz to the work, so i kept using it and now it’s a staple.” Each Swarovski Crystal is applied by hand.

The Hamsa (also known as the Hand of Fatima, the Hand of Miriam or the Hamesh hand) is a Muslim and Jewish symbol of good luck intended to ward off evil and protect against the evil eye and the envious. The Hamsa is shaped like an open hand stopping or warning an enemy. It has attained both religious and cultural symbolism. Although she has invigorated the Hamsa through the use of gems, colors and textures, she has also worked to maintain the original integrity of the Hamsa through the inclusion of traditional eye designs, prayers, and Stars of David in the center of many of her Hamsa designs. Small Hamsas are 4" length and 3" width. Large Hamsas are 5.25" length and 3.5" width.
Michal Golan's ornate collection of crosses have captivated fans of her work for years. Although they are fairly new to Michal's collection, they have fast become one of her best selling items. This is due to the attention to detail and Michal's trademark style, which mixes a traditional Holy Land aesthetic with a modern fashion sensibility. Michal's crosses stand out due to their bold colors, meticulous workmanship, and timeless style. All Michal Golan crosses are hand-made in New York City, so every cross is as ornate and beautiful as it appears here on the site.
