Jewelry Manufacturing with Gildform

When I started Hamaila, I made everything by hand. Every piece of jewelry that went to a customer was measured, cut, shaped, soldered and polished by my two hands. It worked for a while, but eventually I reached the place where all my time was spent making the same few designs over and over. It wasn’t sustainable or creatively fulfilling and I was constantly exhausted; I had no energy to devote to creating new designs or growing my business and I just couldn’t meet the demands of my business by myself. 

Then Gildform came into my life. 

Gildform might be the coolest platform I’ve encountered in jewelry design yet. It’s a design + manufacturing company in Detroit that does it all. You can upload a 3D CAD file of jewelry on their website, pick the metal and finish you want and then they will 3D print a wax model, cast it in the selected metal, and polish it. They keep you updated on the process every step of the way and they have a crew of talented CAD designers who can help you make that initial CAD file. 


It blows my mind. 


I have the creative control to make whatever I want and, with Gildform on my team, I have access to tools I thought were far beyond my reach. They can help me scale up in a way I didn’t think was possible in this stage of my business.


So far, they have been helping me with the standard Nabi earrings in sterling silver.  This semester I’m taking a class in Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing for Jewelry and very excited to utilize what I learn there with Gildform. I’m hoping to cast my Shamaila Square Earrings fairly soon as well as all the different variants of the Nabi Earrings. Keep an eye out.


My favourite thing about Gildform (besides their incredible app and the fact that they used refined precious metals) is that it’s a brand new US based company that’s owned by a black woman entrepreneur. As a woman of color business-owner, I will always support other WOC working towards their dream. People keep asking me why I don’t get my jewelry manufactured in China - that’s not going to happen. We strengthen our community by investing back in it. That’s what both Ladysmiths of ATX and Brown Girls' Food Club were built on and that one of our strongest values here at Hamaila. 


This blogpost was meant to announce that Hamaila was awarded ‘Best in Design’ for Gildform, but it turned into a love letter for Gildform. I’m okay with that. You can check out more about the award on their blog. Send Karissma some love, and if you know any jewelry brands looking to get their work manufactured ethically and sustainably - send them to Gildform.

During menopause, women experience many fundamental physical changes. Uncomfortable symptoms including hot flashes, decreased sex drive, and trouble sleeping often accompany these changes. But the tummy of menopause is the one that, for many, is a challenge to overcome; not only for a healthy vanity, but for health it is essential that you look for ways to lower it. These are some natural ways to help you.
Yes, for many women experiencing an increase in abdominal fat during menopause is a real frustration. Hormonal imbalances drive these changes. Many women gain abdominal fat during menopause, and one of the main reasons for this increase is lower levels of estrogen.

Diabetes is a chronic (long-lasting) health condition that affects how your body turns food into energy. Most of the food you eat is broken down into sugar (also called glucose) and released into your bloodstream. When your blood sugar goes up, it signals your pancreas to release insulin.

Eating more often can help you lose weight. When you eat large meals with many hours in between, your metabolism slows down between meals. Having a small meal or snack every 3 to 4 hours keeps your metabolism cranking, so you burn more calories over the course of a day.

I’d say that breast cancer patients are the majority of patients who come to us for help with weight gain. Weight gain is also extremely common among patients with prostate cancer, as well as lymphoma, multiple myeloma and chronic leukemia.

Push ups are quite effective when it comes to building muscles. The same cannot be said when it comes to helping one lose weight. Although they are a good exercise, they do not trigger a quick fat burn. This is due to the fact that push ups do not cause a significantly elevated heart rate.

The correct answer is that fat is converted to carbon dioxide and water. You exhale the carbon dioxide and the water mixes into your circulation until it’s lost as urine or sweat. If you lose 10 pounds of fat, precisely 8.4 pounds comes out through your lungs and the remaining 1.6 pounds turns into water.

Anxiety causes the muscles to tense up, which can lead to pain and stiffness in almost any area of the body. Constant stress and worry can also prevent the immune system from working properly, leading to decreased resistance to infection and disease.

Despite what people rave about, or sometimes, despite your best efforts, it can happen that the Ketogenic diet doesn’t really spell results for you and does not help you lose weight in the manner you desire. This can be very unsettling and frustrating, given the diet restrictions Keto forces you to adhere to.

A plant from the ginger family, turmeric is often used in South Asian cuisine, such as curry. It contains curcumin, the key ingredient that can help decrease inflammation. To be effective as either a supplement or food – and not simply metabolized and excreted – turmeric should be absorbed with fatty oils, such as avocado or olive oil, and black pepper, which most supplements contain.

Ketosis is a metabolic adaptation to allow the body to survive in a period of famine. Your body will break down ketone bodies, a type of fuel the liver produces from fat, instead of sugar or glucose from carbohydrates. To achieve ketosis, the diet requires you eat 75 percent of your calories from fat, compared to 20-35 percent normally. It also requires 5 percent of calories from carbohydrates, about 20-50 grams per day, and 15 percent of calories from protein.

You can’t just hop onto your bathroom scale and expect a spot-on measurement every time. The flooring your scale sits on (it should be on a hard surface), how you stand (weight even on both feet), and the clothes you wear (or don’t) need to be consistent. If not, you may see wildly different numbers.
