This ketubah features a contemporary papercut design that alludes to and partly imitates old lace and traditional Jewish papercut artwork. It is structured around a hamsa, including lacy work on the fingertips of the hamsa form, with pomegranates and foliage. A pair of sea turtles is incorporated below.

Background is handmade Nepalese lokta gold foil paper.

Approximately 18"x24".


All my ketubahs and wedding certificates are custom made. I do the background watercolor (ink wash) painting, the papercut design and cutting, and the calligraphy myself. I can work with any text you give me, in any language, and I love to include images and symbols that are special to you in the papercut or calligraphic design. I will work with you to develop your dream ketubah or wedding certificate. Also, if you happen to be in the NYC area, I would be happy to meet with you to show you some examples of my work.

My ketubahs and wedding certificates are not prints: they are actual original paintings onto which I write, in calligraphy, your text. This is different from pre-printed ketubahs you see that are "personalized" simply by adding your names, place, dates into a blank slot.

Please convo me if you are interested in custom artwork of this kind. You can see other samples of my work on my website (http://www.jerise.com).
