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.

Sunstone Villa ketubah

______________________________________________ 
SUNSTONE VILLA
18X24 inches big | Midnight Blue & Gold

Two years ago I was commissioned to create one of my favorite ketubot to date, which I've named Sunstone Villa.*  
(*I am unfortunately horribly unimaginative when it comes to naming my papercuts. I just draw complete blanks. Any suggestions and ideas are welcome!)

Hildy & Aaron are a lovely couple who wanted a ketubah to celebrate their merging backgrounds and honor their interfaith ceremony. Basically, a great explosion of botany was called for: the Seven Species for Aaron, and flora from the Philippines for Hildy, nestled among flowers symbolising love & devotion. And to make the papercut even more lovely, they asked to include their wedding location - the Sunstone Villa - to commemorate their union. We went through a round of revisions, and the ketubah came out all the more beautiful for it. I especially love the way the villa is peeking out of the roses.
