From Stephanie Adler…Professional graphic designer, international ketubah artist and jewelry designer – Stephanie Adler (name linked to site) is recognized for her outstanding artistic designs. As a classically trained artist and graphic designer, Stephanie combines her talents, earning a reputation in corporate identity development, print, illustration and web design. Because the ketubah celebrates such happiness and joy, it remains the heart of her company.
The ketubah is a 3000 year old prenuptial – an earthly contract between bride and groom. Ancient ketubot, are written in Aramaic, to explain basic material, conjugal and moral obligations of the groom to his bride. It acknowledges and protects the rights and property of the wife from destitution, in cases of divorce or death. The contract is signed by two witnesses and conveyed to the bride during the wedding ceremony.
Adlerdesigns started in 2001 when asked to design a ketubah for her sister. Thus began a fulfilling journey, sharing some of the happiest, most special times in a couple’s life. Combining modern designs with classic technique, Stephanie created a unique work of art, unlike any other ketubah at that time. Today, the tradition of the ketubah has been adopted by many different religious faiths and denominations.
Recently, Stephanie began designing exquisite fine jewelry, originated from an original, abstract symbol for a stamp. AHAVA, the Hebrew word for LOVE, was created from the arrangement of Hebrew letters to signify a binding, infinite symbol of happiness. Each piece of jewelry is custom made with the finest gold and diamonds.
Stephanie Adler’s creativity, versatility and flexibility define style and continue to distinguish her from other artists. If imitation is the highest form of flattery, Stephanie continues to lead the way in artistic ketubah and jewelry design.
Love, love, LOVE. All caps. A pretty, pretty welcome to all of our advertisers on SMP New York!
