KETUBAH, Jewish Marriage Contract, Jewish Wedding Ketubah.

I was honored when I was commissioned to make A "Ketubah" for a beautiful couple getting married.

"ketubah  is a special type of Jewish prenuptial agreement. It is considered an integral part of a traditional Jewish marriage, and outlines the rights and responsibilities of the groom, in relation to the bride."

I really enjoyed making this piece of art, and knowing that this art will remain with them forever made it that much more special and challenging.

    Materials: Water Color Paper 18x24, Water colors, Acrylic gold & white, Gold Leafs, white glitter, and Brown Sharpie Pen.
