My pieces aren't for
everyone. They are for that special woman who does not mind
calling attention to herself and telling the world a little bit about herself through
her clothing and jewelry. You might not want to yell, "Notice me!" in a crowded room,
but this jewelry will be glad to do it for you!
Mazel Tov! Jewelry Treasures™
"Mazel tov!" is a Yiddish
and Hebrew too, for that matter. While it literally
means "luck good" ("good luck" for English speakers!), what it really means is
"congratulations!" So I could say to you, "Mazel tov for having found my website!" but
I wouldn't want to say, "Mazel tov trying to choose just one design!" Instead, I'd have to
say, "Good luck on that ~ you're going to need it!" If you've read this far, you probably
are one of those women who likes to let the world know who you are ~ or else you are in
love with one of those women!
Think of Mazel Tov! Jewelry
as pieces which will help you celebrate your life
in all its many facets.
My name is Cyndi Lavin, and
design and create Mazel Tov! Jewelry Treasures. I make
many of the glass beads used in my pieces, which allows me to create in exactly the colors,
textures, and sizes that I want.
Working with glass in a
(called lampwork) is mesmerizing business. Before you
know it, you've got a stack of beads and no dinner on the table. But thankfully, my
family is very patient ~ and very used to this. They have always known that I have a
tendency to overdo things a bit. I take up running...and end up marathoning. I go to
color my hair...and end up with colors not normally found in nature. My running buds
and I decide to go on a little adventure...and we end up running across the Grand Canyon.
Just a little obsessive, I guess. But I digress.
Life can be fun. Life
be a challenge. But life is always a gift. Some artists
from their pain, but I have always worked from my joy. And joy is certainly one of the
most precious gifts anyone can receive in life. My joy comes not from my circumstances,
although I will be the first to admit that I have been undeservedly blessed, but from my
faith. While you will certainly see themes of faith running through my work, I do not
consider my pieces to be religious jewelry. They are not intended to be the embodiment
of any spiritual forces, but instead are simply a reflection of my love for my Creator.
"For we are God’s
created in Christ Jesus to do good works,
which God prepared in advance for us to do." Ephesians 2:10
