Are you looking for a ketubah of artisan quality that is calligraphed and painted in Israel?
I work with brides and grooms looking to express their unique love story and commitment with a custom ketubah that is entirely handcrafted with elegant Hebrew & English calligraphy and watercolor illustration. I help couples accomplish this and I do it with love and appreciation for every letter and individual brush stroke. Your ketubah is sure to become a talking piece in your home and an heirloom for generations to come.
Important to note: Each ketubah crafted in my studio is uniquely custom and handmade, like the ketubahs of our ancestors. They are never printed. Additionally, I am open to collaborating with other artists should you like me to create the calligraphy alone though my preference is for ketubah commissions including calligraphy & illustration.
*Availability for August 2023 Weddings & onward
Fill in my Contact form with any relevant information that you'd like me to know upon getting started. Wedding date, location, desired motifs, number of languages, etc. Ideally clients book at least 8 weeks before the wedding but rush projects are an option when possible.
It is important to me that my clients choose to work with me with 100% confidence. That is why I offer complimentary calls or meetings in my studio so we can discuss anything on your mind related to the project.
Once the couple has decided to go forward, a 50% deposit is paid to confirm the booking and a simple digital contract is signed to make sure all details are clear for everyone. Ketubah pricing starts at 3000 USD. Final pricing depends on size, illustration intricacy and number of languages.
Once the booking is made, the couple should get to work finalizing their text with their officiating rabbi. Once that is prepared it should be sent in an editable file like Word or Google docs.
Clients can send me any and all photo inspiration they'd like me to work with. I then create a moodboard to provide the general feel for the artwork.
Once the moodboard is approved and the text is finalized, I begin creating my clients beautiful ketubah using all the information collected & my creative vision! I always begin the actual piece with the text and then move on to the illustration. You can get sneak peeks on my Instagram stories as I share progress.
Once the design is completed and the second deposit is paid, I ship off the custom ketubah with international express couriers and clients should have it in hand within a few business days! So exciting! I recommend displaying the ketubah on an easel at the ceremony to be hands free and for beautiful photos. And once a client, always a client. I am here to help with anything else that might come up. Mazal tov!
