Gold & Silver
For centuries, artists and artisans have turned to silver and gold leaf as a way to make their creations shimmer and shine. Evident in everything from ancient artifacts to modern masterpieces, the glistening accents can add an ethereal touch to any work of art. Today, many contemporary artists continue to use silver and gold leaf in their work. These metallics are celebrated for their ability to accentuate color and form through luminous details.
Papercutting has been a traditional Jewish art form for Ketubah decoration since the Middle Ages. Thanks to advances in artisanal laser cutting in the late 20th century, these exquisite pieces of fine art are now within everyone’s budget. Papercut Ketubahs are lovingly produced, one at a time, to archival standards.
