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.

In continuation of the whole 'being appreciated' theme from my last post (because it's nice to take the time to make note of these things) Mr Yen, who's a wonderful papercutting artist & illustrator (I'm sure you've heard of him), featured my work on the excellent Paper Runway blog. I'm a BIG fan of the magazine where passion meets paper, so this is a huge honor for me!
Also above is a beautiful photo that a client sent in of her Peonies Frame papercut ketubah, from my collaboration with the Urban Collective. The ketubah was for a very stylish couple Richard & Desiree, who's wedding was featured on The Wedding Yentas site! (Photography by Heidi Ryder)
