H E L L O !
My name is Naomi Shiek (pronounced CHIC).
I create papercut ketubot for private clients in the Nouveau Judaica style.

What is a ketubah, you ask? A KETUBAH is a decorative marriage covenant used and exhibited in Jewish, non-denominational and non-traditional weddings and commitment ceremonies wherein the couple's vows to each other are declared.

Wings


This is the 7th and last design currently in my Woodland Papercuts Wedding Collection.

You know that imagery of birds taking flight as a symbol of love? What always attracted me the most about those visuals were the birds' wings. There's something incredibly fascinating to me about the layers of feathers, the intricate shapes and patterns of each that make up the delicate and incredibly decorative shape of the wing.

That was the concept behind the Wings invitation and reply card. I wanted to make a dynamic composition and visual study of wings. I especially love the reply card, how the bird bursts out of the square. Of all the collection, Wings is definitely the least "quiet" and "serene".

Price requests are welcome at Woodland Papercuts

Like the other sets, Wings can matched with one of my papercut ketubot, for example Birds
