The Festival of Lights
Each year Hanukkah is celebrated by millions of people of the Jewish faith. ‘Hanukkah’ is Hebrew for dedication. The dedication to the temple in Jerusalem is celebrated with the festival of lights, a nightly lighting of the menorah.
Sit Stay Heal
When your creations lead you somewhere excellent, it feels serendipitous. As if the universe showers you with gifts. The Sit Stay Heal bracelet led me to the Rubin Museum of Art.
The World Is Born in a Hug
On October 8, 2017, I married my best friend Gili Getz. It was a glorious event.
Resistance in Review
I wanted to start this post with a lighthearted list of resolutions. But here are some of my more serious highlights from this past year.
I first met Alex at Abraço, my favorite cafe off E 7th and 1st. It was spring and there was an air of newness everywhere, from the budding weeds in the sidewalk cracks to relationships starting and ending.
For the Runner in All of Us
Admittedly, I was never a runner. Not for lack of trying, though. My best time was 2 miles in 40 minutes after running for eight months (don’t laugh. Okay laugh.)
Close to Your Heart
Bringing exceptional verse close to the heart has a been a mission of ours and a source of great inspiration. Here are three poems by masters of the pen, Khalil Gibran, Leah Goldberg, and Gertrude Stein.
The Rescuer From Bad Dreams
The earrings and pendant are designed in a beautiful Tibetan script. The mantra repeats twice with OM at the top and the bottom. These fine jewelry pieces are created in 18K gold and white diamonds pave and made to order.
"What would make an impact on women in a very practical way, that would allow them to participate in establishment institutions, where they had been pretty much rejected?"
Love, Life and Family
"I wanted something a little more personal to me, not only are the words beautiful and have meaning to me, but James Joyce is Irish and I grew up in Ireland so the words are a more intimate choice for me. My life is about love."
Sing my song
We met with Blossom Leilani Crawford, at her sun-lit studio, Bridges Pilates, in Vinegar Hill, Brooklyn. A year prior, we created for her a custom necklace that says, "Sing my song KSG."
Keeping the stars apart
We loved collaborating on this bracelet with calligrapher Stephanie Caplan, who like us, is inspired by the idea of words and typography in art.
Love to death!
"I share Celia Dropkin’s belief in passionate and overwhelming love as the driving force of both the artistic expression and of the personal world of emotions."
If there weren't all these freeways / I would love you / like the Indians in Ojai / bending trees over creeks / so people forever would know / the fish lie thick / in quiet pools.
