A jewelry piece will sometimes have a metal stamping on it, usually to personalize it in some way, occasionally with Hebrew characters. Sherman makes a beautiful necklace with the words of the Shema metal-stamped on it. “I take and cure a metal piece,” Sherman says, “sometimes color it, and whack the metal into shapes, most often personalizing the metal. Then I make a bracelet, necklace, key chain, pendant, charm…”
A true renaissance woman, Sherman learned from the best. Her father wrote countless well-known and beloved songs with his brother, Richard M. Sherman, most famously the Mary Poppinsscore and “It’s a Small World (After All).” However, Robert B. Sherman also had other artistic aspects to him. For years, he painted beautiful pictures, many of which reflect powerful scenes involving Judaism and Jews.
