I was so excited to receive this photo of these two beautiful women celebrating Shani's wedding day. Timeless beauty!

Cherkes Wedding

Miriam, my sweet grandmother, whose last name was Cherkes, ran away to Tashkent in World War II and lived there. This design called Cherkes is (mainly) a bridal earring that corresponds to the Bukharan and Circassian jewels. I combined traditional and new techniques, creating a connection between old and new.
