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.

new in the shop | Our Wedding Flora ketubah


Talk about Flower Power! From the honeysuckles to the Jasmine, each petal and leaf stands here as a symbol of true love and friendship. Naturally, it's called OUR WEDDING FLORA.

This one would fit in a secret garden just fine. Our Wedding Flora is 18X18" big and has a special detail that will be personalized for every couple - a hidden vine monogram of the couple's name. It's photographed here in silver and greys fit for a winter magic wedding, but bring the gold and greens, and the ketubah can take center place in a summer garden! 

The design was actually born from this custom ketubah commissioned by a lovely couple last year called Flowers & Herbs. I'm obsessed with that papercut, really. First, flowers. Can't be sad drawing flowers. Second, it represents one of my favorite things to do: decoding art. Symbolism, ladies and gents, love it!

The ketubah includes the following flowers and herbs: water lilies, black eye suzies, morning glory, myrtle, glowing rods, daffodils, honeysuckles, ivy, lavender, basil, and yarrow. I'm pretty sure I got them all:)

To see more photos of this ketubah and others, go to my TREE & FLORA GALLERY.

As always, my availability dates are posted in the website sidebar and my shop announcement.
