loved you before you were born and continues to love you no matter how
old you get, no matter how far apart you may live. At Jewish
Gift Place, we love this day not only because we are moms, but it
falls right in the heart of spring, when the flowers are in full bloom
and it’s not too hot yet, but not too cold. However, our mothers
would still make us put on a sweater, for sure. But that’s what
we all love about our moms. They are always looking out for us and putting
us first. So now, more than ever, is the perfect time to show your mom
your love and appreciation for all that she does.
When you give a gift from Jewish Gift
Place, you are telling your mom she is unique, special, beautiful, and
cherished, because all of our gifts are created by talented artists
who lovingly craft each item by hand. We've put together our Top
Ten Mother's Day Gifts to help you shop for all the incredible
women in your life. This includes mothers, grandmothers, aunts, mothers-in-law,
sisters, cousins, friends, teachers, and anyone else you can think of
who may be a special “Mom” to you.
Top Ten Jewish Mother’s
First on our list is the Eduardo
Milieris Women’s Narrow Band Copper Hebrew Watch. It is a spectacular
one-of-a kind watch - one which marries a state-of-the-art quartz movement
for precise time, keeping with the patina of an artifact dug up by a treasure
hunter. Uruguay-born artist Eduardo Milieris has been fascinated by the
integration of art and time since he was a child. In fact, his mom still
keeps his notebooks from when he was a young child, with drawings of houses
with clocks above the front door. Each Watchcraft copper watch by Eduardo
Milieris has been weathered and oxidized, using carefully researched techniques.
Milieris deliberately refrained from sealing the silver, brass, and copper,
so that the watch continues to age gracefully. He also paints each watch
face by hand, giving it a distinct appearance. This beautiful watch is
truly symbolic of how a mother’s special love endures all time.
Does your mom love to read? If so, the Gary
Rosenthal Woman of Valor Marble Bookends would make an exceptional
and personal gift. They feature a beautiful picture of a woman of valor
on one side, and an inspirational poem on the other. One verse states,
“Her children rise up and call her blessed.” What could be
more fitting for Mother’s Day? In addition, these bookends by world-renowned
artist, Gary Rosenthal, can be personalized with your own heartfelt words.
Mom always said that good things come in
small packages. But what if the package itself is the “good thing?”
This is so true when it comes to the beautiful Michal
Golan Amethyst, Blue Lace Agate, and Pearl Decorative Box. Michal
told Risa in a recent
interview that she draws inspiration from Middle Eastern mosaics,
Victorian jewelry, and Byzantine art. Certainly, these influences are
reflected in this stunning piece of art priced. Perfect to hold all of
mom’s treasures, old and new.
Photographic memories are some of our most
cherished possessions. Any mother would be proud to display a favorite
family photo in the Gary
Rosenthal 5x7 Picture Frame with Heart and Glass Bead. The frame itself
is a stunning work of art, handcrafted and sculpted from mixed metals
and fused glass. An added bonus is that this frame can be personalized
with your own message to mom.
Day Gifts of Jewelry
Every time she looks at this intricately
detailed, sterling silver locket, she will think of you. Straight from
our “Ahava” collection comes the Michael
Bromberg Tree of Life/Ahava Locket on an 18" chain. One side
of the locket details a stately tree of life stretching its limbs up toward
heaven, and the other side is the Hebrew word, "Ahava," which
means both “love,” and “to give.” This piece is
truly symbolic of the love which grows between a mother and her children.
The locket can hold two pictures and will be a treasured piece any mom
would love to wear, dressed up or down.
If you are looking for a bold piece that makes
a statement, then Cynthia
Gale’s Magnificent Star of David Toggle Necklace is it. This
star is adapted from a 20th century American Torah Ark Valance, originally
done in gold braid on fabric, and was created in conjunction with the
Jewish Museum in New York. The braid detail is beautifully recreated in
the substantial 16" chain, and there is a stone on each side of the
toggle. You can choose from amethyst, blue topaz, or pearl. Also available
is a matching
bracelet. This collectible museum piece would make an excellent and
cherished addition to a mother’s jewelry box.
For the mom who likes to get noticed and
deserves the absolute best, we have chosen the Neta
Large Star of David with Amethyst on Pearl necklace. Compliments will
abound when she wears this large sterling silver Star of David accented
in the center with a stunning amethyst cabochon, hanging from an exquisite
string of fresh water pearls. This piece demands attention and exemplifies
how Neta’s jewelry illuminates the body and nourishes the soul.
It is the ultimate luxury piece.
Award-winning artist Michael Bromberg has brought some
new pieces to Jewish Gift Place, and we are proud to carry them and pass
them on to you. For Mother’s Day we have chosen this beautiful sterling
Bromberg Shema Pendant on Leather hanging from a simple, sleek leather
necklace. The necklace itself is 19" with a 2" extender, so
it can be worn shorter or longer, depending on mood and preference. This
is truly a personal piece because the Shema prayer is a pledge of faith
to one God, said upon arising in the morning and going to sleep at night,
and when praising and beseeching Him. It is a beaut
iful tribute to the faith you share with your mother.
Across the board, the moms at Jewish Gift
Place (that's Risa, Lisa, and Lana) all agree that we absolutely, completely
love the Michal
Golan Black Hamsa Necklace. It is the perfect gift for Mother’s
Day for many reasons. It is affordably priced, it comes in three sizes:
small, medium, or large, and it is bathed in colorful Swarovski crystals
and glass. The colors are magnificent and the flower detailing is reminiscent
of springtime. In her interview
with Risa, Michal mentioned her artwork is often inspired by everyday
things, like a trip to the store or a walk in the park. Perhaps this amazing
necklace was created after one of these trips, and certainly, it can be
worn on either of these outings.
The last piece on our top ten list comes to us from an
incredible artist, who also happens to be a mom, Emily Rosenfeld. The
Rosenfeld Hebrew/English Love Bracelet is very well priced at $35
and features a pewter charm with the word “Love” on one side
and its Hebrew translation, "Ahava," on the other. It comes
on a leather bracelet in your choice of 9 rich colors and 2 different
sizes. In her recent interview
with Risa, Emily revealed that she gets her inspiration from feelings
and relationships and this is exemplified in her collection of inspirational
word bracelets. It is easy to see that her relationship with her son translates
beautifully into her art and her work.
