Benediction Gold Necklace
A Benediction Revealed: In 1979, 2 tiny silver scrolls were found in Jerusalem, dating from 600 B.C. It took years to interpret the ancient Hebrew writing as the original priestly blessing: May the Lord bless you and keep you; may the Lord cause his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; may the Lord lift up his countenance and grant you peace. Some theorize that the scrolls were either worn around the neck with a cord or carried in a pouch, to offer protection and blessing to its bearer.
Beth created this necklace to replicate the ancient talisman: the writing is etched into a fine silver sheet, rolled and fired. 24k gold plate on the second fire. The result: a meaningful and beautiful necklace to bring peace and blessing to its wearer.

Meet the Artist: Beth Haber
Beth is a Hudson Valley artist whose work is concerned with issues of archive and transparency - exploring the intermediary space between descriptive observation and the imagination. Her process of assemblage is informed by the “vast sea” of living tradition in dialogue with the world and by the notion of Gilgul (recycling): she considers the implications as archive moves from paper to plastic, recycling the traditional art genre of still life. Beth is a recipient of the New York State Council of the Arts Award. Her work has been shown at Bard College, Vassar College, The Katonah Museum and the Israel Museum in Jerusalem and is in museum, university and private collections throughout the world, including that of Shimon Peres.Learn More
