Handmade in Massachusetts.

Emily Rosenfeld

After graduating college with a degree in English, Emily Rosenfeld started working for production jewelers Lewis and Hubener, where she stayed for two years. Working with jewelry made her realize that she wanted to earn her living with her hands and with her eye, and she moved to Oakland, California, started studying in workshops and began to make her own jewelry in 1991.

For two years, she ran her business out of a Murphy bed closet, then moved to New Paltz, New York before finally settling in Western Massachusetts. Her studio there is a converted factory building filled with other artists, where she feels continually inspired to develop new designs and play with new materials and techniques. She says of her jewelry, "Making my work makes me very happy; I hope owning it brings a measure of joy as well."

        Bought this as a baby gift for friends. They loved it and were excited to put it on the door to their nursery. Such a special gift, and it's beautifully made, too - it manages to be whimsical and cute enough for a nursery without actually looking cartoonish and childish.

                purchased as a baby gift to remind him and his parents how blessed they are. In addition to the provided scripture, we added some of our favorite Bible passages to personalize it for the baby. Hoping it will be something he will keep and place on his own child's doorway.
