Valentine’s Day is around the corner and I was wondering: “When did we start celebrating this day?” “Why is it called Valentine’s Day?” “Why do we celebrate it on February 14th?” So, I went to Wikipedia and that’s what I found out.
This day of love is celebrated all over the world, but it is not considered a holiday in every country. Also known as Saint Valentine’s Day, February 14th began as a religious celebration of the Christian saint, Valentinus, in Italy. By the 18th century, it evolved into a celebration of love and courtship that is widespread across many countries. The most recognized symbols for Valentine’s Day include the heart shape, doves, and the image of Cupid.
I love using the heart symbol in my work. We have a section of Valentine’s jewelry on our website, but I also have a few wall hamsas with hearts and even some mezuzahs. We just sent a $15 coupon to all of our customers. It can be used to purchase a heart or any other piece on our website.
The coupon code is: love15
Please enter it in the coupon code box before checkout.

Also the beautiful miss Taylor Aube of stopdropandvogue stopped by the studio to see how all the jewelry is made and to meet me. It was awesome! She took tons of pictures and will be writing a blog post soon. I will let everyone know when it’s up.
