“Paws of Life” Custom Mezuzah in Sterling Silver for “The Grace Farm Senior Pug Sanctuary” The Meaning of My Design – “The heart at bottom symbolizes the love Andrea & David give to their animals here on earth on their farm. The paw prints in movement upward towards the sun are their Pugs living a full and complete life, moving free and experiencing grass under their feet on the farm and the warmth of the sun on their faces. They are walking towards the “Chai”, which is the Hebrew symbol meaning “long life”. The heart above the “Chai” are all the precious Pugs that have crossed Rainbow Bridge taking Andrea & David’s love with them, running and playing freely, happy and in good health once again on the other side. The top of the Mezuzah has to be removable so the handwritten “kosher scroll”, the blessing, can be inserted inside the Sterling Silver case. Twisted links on top and bottom enable the Mezuzah to be affixed to the doorway. The Mezuzah now has it’s intended meaning and will come full circle with it’s blessing once it is affixed to Andrea & David’s doorway.” SOLD
Rainbow Bridge Charm Bracelet – This is a very special tribute and bracelet filled with lots of love. I was asked to create a “Rainbow Bridge Charm Bracelet” memorializing the pets that were loved and lost with their names engraved in little hearts. It was my honor to create this bracelet for my client. These are the pieces that make my “job” worthwhile. SOLD
THE “GARDEN OF LONG LIFE” MEZUZAH in Sterling Silver – As a Silversmith, the most gratifying work I can be asked to create is a commission for a customized piece of major importance. The Mezuzah is that piece.
On the right doorpost of almost every Jewish home you will find a small box or case positioned on a slight angle. This box serves as a reminder to live by God’s commandments.
I created this Mezuzah visualizing a living vine growing up to the heavens and back down to the earth with blessings to the people residing in the home. The Hebrew symbol “Chai” is on the face of the Mezuzah…translation…”Long Life”. A hand-written scroll from Israel is enclosed inside with the blessing. (Read more about the meaning of the Mezuzah on my Jewelry Info page)

The “Georgette” Sterling & Fine Silver Jade Pendant
The client, Georgette, supplied me with her jade cabochon and Italian Sterling Omega chain and requested a contemporary, clean design. This is what I created for her. I did texture the silver behind the jade and the pendant border to offset all the “shiny” and create some other interest and dimension. SOLD
