Ibis Ketubah, by Judith Joseph
I love my job! This commission gave me the challenge of creating a ketubah which had similar imagery to a previous work from 2008, which the couple really liked. (See below.) The brides are cousins, so I wanted to be sure that, although the overall colors and imagery were similar, they were still distinctly different. How did I do?
Doves/ Moon Ketubah, by Judith Joseph
I had the privilege of making a ketubah for the sister of the Doves/ Moon Ketubah bride in 2009 (see below.) I love it when my ketubahs become a family tradition, it is truly an honor, and fun to get to know various members of the tribe.
