Blue Diamond Ketubah
I will betroth you to me forever; I will betroth you in righteousness and justice, in love and compassion.(Hosea 2:19)
Long and sweeping branches of a tree gracefully ensconce the ketubah text while being elegantly framed by intricate patterns reminiscent of carved oriental screens.
The paper cut masterfully integrates natural motifs with myriad geometric patterns.
A lovely blue with a slight tint of purple brings out the beauty of the three-layered ketubah: defining the contours of the cut and enhancing its overall feeling of gentility.
There is something simultaneously classic and contemporary, eastern, and yet very western, and tranquil but vibrant about the Blue Diamond ketubah; all of which makes it the work of timeless beauty that it is.

Color Song Ketubah
In our life there is a single color, as on an artist's palette, which provides the meaning of life and art. It is the color of love. (Marc Chagall)
Luminosity and color take center stage in this synchronous composition. It is a poem of palette and hue, light and movement, and fusion and modulation.
The two-layered paper cut–with its rhythmic interplay of burgeoning lines-creates a strong counterpoint to the drama of transitioning color taking place in the underlying layer.
There is over-all simplicity to the complexity of the design that is a visual metaphor for marriage: dynamic, always changing, full of intricacy but with the clarity and candor of love which lies at the heart of it all.

Karmei Yerushalayim Papercut Ketubah
Symbolic motifs abound in the Karmei Yerushalayim (Jerusalem Vineyards) ketubah. Two peacocks (beauty) flanking a pomegranate tree (plenty) are bathed in golden light. The clusters of grapes surrounding the text remind us of the wine, which plays a central part of the wedding ceremony.
Wine is symbolic of the life cycle. Just as the grape juice is transformed to something that improves with age, so may the marriage bring increasing joy throughout the years. Beneath the text is the city of Jerusalem, always cherished in our hearts and minds.

Hadas Papercut Ketubah
The Hadas (Myrtle Leaves) Ketubah, in its simplicity of design, is an elegant and sophisticated artwork.

Jerusalem Gate Papercut Ketubah
A rhythmic growth of vines,reaching upwards towards the skies dominates the eloquent design of the Jerusalem Gate ketubah. Here is Spring’s awakening: a dance of leaves and tendrils creating patterns of loveliness and vitality.

There reigns an air of tranquility: a stolen moment of repose in life’s exhilarating journey. This is an eloquent allegory for the bride and groom and the oaths exchanged, which both binds and strengthens each one.
“I will betroth you to me with righteousness and justice, kindness and mercy”
