I don’t know about you, but I adore the “things” in my life to have sentiment attached to them.  I’m always drawn to items that carry a story or a special meaning behind them (the r house is especially amazing at this and thus I love absolutely everything they create).

Today I found an artist who makes lovely, little items, full of sentiment and meaning.  Emily Rosenfeld creates jewelry, gifts and Judaica, all with the motto “Made with Joy.” Emily says, “My goal is to make jewelry, Judaica and gifts that are contemporary and expressive. The work is given its full meaning when it becomes part of your personal expression. I hope the joy and strength I get from making this work is what it carries and inspires.”

Check out a few of my favorite pieces from this fabulous, creative chick (as usual, click on the pictures to be redirected to her store):

Sterling Dove Earrings – $42.00

Tree Locket – $48.00 (isn’t this locket a fun spin-off of traditional lockets?)

Sterling Silver Contemporary Star of David Bracelet – $70.00

There are many more sentimental, hand-crafted jewelry pieces and gifts that I really enjoyed.  To see Emily’s full selection, go to emilyrosenfeld.com.  Thanks for inspiring us with your creativity, Emily!
