Papercutting

Since 1984, Jeanette has been creating handmade papercuttings for families and institutions in the U.S., Europe, South America, Canada, and Israel. Each papercutting is hand-made and one-of-a-kind. Jeanette also creates ketubot (marriage contracts) decorated with papercutting.  Contact Jeanette if you are interested in commissioning a papercutting.
