Shin Torah Crown – Progress is good!

Hi Everybody, After an almost two month break, I got back to work on the Shin Torah Crown.  It took a few days, and at some points two torches, but I managed to get those suckers soldered!  This four part hollow form is one of the most technically challenging pieces I’ve ever made.  I’ve loved every minute of it.  Here’s…

A Day in the Studio – Handmade Silver and Gold Jewelry

Today was one of those lucky days when I remembered to sieze the moment.  The morning began unceremoniously — I was doing inventory and packing boxes to my upcoming show and speaking engagmement at the NewCAJE6 Conference: Re-inventing Jewish Education for the 21st Century— when I suddenly realized today is one of those days that I could have uninterupted time…

Rosh Hashanah 101

A recent conversation with an old friend (since we were 11 years old) is inspiring me to write this post.  This is a dear friend who was planning an event that was going to land on “Erev Rosh Hashanah” — which is the night before Rosh Hashanah (actually holiday officially begins at sundown.)  One of the people invited to attend…

This Hanukkah: Give Local Handmade Gifts that Give Back

The holiday season presents a unique opportunity for the spirit of giving to take over.  As an artist, I love being able to utilize the gift I have for creativity in metal art, Judaica and jewelry while giving back to the community.  This year, I’ve decided to donate 10% of sales to either Congreagation Beth Israel Judea in SF, or…

A year ago… WE DID IT! And Now….

Hello everybody! The Japanese – Shin Torah crowns are finished! I will send you a good photo after the photo shoot.

Colombia: A Spiritual Adventure – Part One

We embarked upon a huge adventure this holiday season and took a trip to Colombia, South America.  My husband David was born there and adopted by American-Jewish parents at the age of two.  After 40 years in the U.S. he’d never been back.  As soon as we heard it was safe to travel there, we got our tickets. We started…

Colombia: A Spiritual Adventure – Part Two

Before our big hike in Tyrona Park with the Wiwa Indians, we journeyed through Christmas in Colombia.  We decided to leave Bogota and venture 3 hours by car north to a Colonial hamlet called Villa De Leyva.  We saw areas on the car ride that had been sites of much violence.  It seemed as though we were lucky to be…

Colombia: A Spiritual Adventure Part Three

While planning our trip, exploring the Indigenous culture in Colombia was of interest to us.  Since David’s ancestors are Indians (we don’t know which tribe) it was fascinating to learn that they were goldsmiths– we wanted to know more.  I am also intensely interested in experiencing the Indigenous cultures of the world and finding out more of the spiritual teachings of…

Colombia: A Spiritual Adventure – Part Four

We made our way through Tayrona Park, which is on the Caribbean coast of Colombia. The hike was lush and mostly uphill towards the Pueblito– home to a small group of Kogi Indians.   As we proceeded with this leg of the trip– about 3 – 4 hours hike– I began asking our Wiwa Indian guide (named Lorenzo) about some…
