Customer photo

Usually I never know what happens once jewelry leaves my hands. I loved getting this photo from a customer, who said her fiance bought her this ring as an engagement ring!

How did he know her size? Impressive!

The ring is stamped with one of my favorite phrases, "Ani l'dodi v'dodi li," meaning, "I am my beloved's and he is mine," Song of Solomon.

Guess who

In the midst of holiday shopping for the family, I found these on etsy for myself - custom silhouette prints. Can you guess who's who?

I love them! They somehow capture each of their personalities. You can get your own made at Le Papier Studio.

A clump of Ostrin

How cute are all the little Ostrins when they are clumped together?

Hmm, I wonder what they are looking at. . .
