Shma Paleo Pendant •  Hebrew Pendant Series

Wear Your History

Words and writing are central to Jewish identity.  The ancient hand that carved and wrote was the inspiration for the pendant series based on Paleo-Hebrew and Hebrew.


The pendant is made of cast-bronze using the ancient lost-wax method and is a signed, limited edition of museum quality. The pendant offers a connection to our past so we feel close to our history.


Inspired by ancient coins and seals, the pendants are worn by women and men for casual or dress attire.


Rich in color, the light affects the polished bronze in various ways as shown by the photos.


Shma in Paleo-Hebrew

Shma (Hear) is written with a large ayin and echad (One) is written with a large dalet in Torah (Deuteronomy 6:4).

The ayin and the dalet together in Hebrew is Eid and means 'witness' be a witness to that truth.

Read backwards, it reads Da and means 'know' that G*d alone.

G*d is one, G*d alone. G*d the one and only. G*d integrated and unified.


Twenty-two elemental letters.

God engraved them, carved them, weighed them, permuted them, and transposed them forming with them everything formed and everything destined to be formed….Thus all that is formed, all that is spoken emerges from one name

    -Daniel C. Matt, The Essential Kabbalah, Castle Books, New Jersey, 1997, p. 102

Lost-Wax Bronze Casting - an ancient process

These pendants are fine art bronze castings using the lost wax method.  The lost wax method of bronze casting was developed in the Ancient Near East in the late 4th millennium BCE, found then both in ancient Ur and Egypt.

This ancient process is used today to create fine art bronzes that embody the artist’s touch.  In the pieces, you can see the imprint of the artist’s hand molding clay and modeling wax.  It is a labor-intensive process, demonstrating fine craft with 5000 years of history utilized during the time of Abraham.
