``I was so happy to discover your collection. The attention to design and craftsmanship is reminiscent of the best in our family heirlooms. Your pieces evoke the pride I feel for my Jewish heritage.
Thank you so much for the bronze Branch Mezuzah. It gives me great pleasure with each coming and going.
I might add, your tantalizing website is more then a store, it is a kind of Judaica candy shop. Thank you for all the pleasure your collection has brought to me and my family. I will be back!``

This hand-hammered plate is inspired by copper Passover plates found in Syria and Persia, as well as the hand-applique techniques from the English Gorham tradition. This blending of artistry creates a unique piece that still fully reflects the story telling nature of this special holiday.
