What you may not know is there is a new vibe going on at The Golden Dreidle…
Owners Shahrokh and Julie Ghodsi have opened an invitation to some of Orange County’s most talented local artists. You can see and feel the new energy throughout the store. Vibrant, colorful, and meaningful paintings align the walls as you walk in, stunning women’s kipot, Fine 960 Silver Jewelry and framed Hamsas, and beautiful Bronze works of art. All are unique, original, one of a kind and affordable.
Diana Shabtai of Art Therapy OC, has painted new pieces just for the Golden Dreidle using multi mediums. Mira Ballard ‘s passion of the “lost wax casting” brings spirituality to her Bronze work. Mira’s pieces can also be seen at the Skirball and other galleries. Hila Abada and Linda Goldsheft of “Hila Hands” are also diverse artists. The Golden Dreidle features their line of 960 Fine Silver in Judaica Jewelry and Mezuzot. Gorgeous Framed 960 Fine Silver Hamsas and tree of lifes are so beautiful! Hila and Linda also have paintings that are throughout the store adding rich colors. Another featured artist is Lisa Herzog who makes handmade women’s kippot. For years her kippot have been shown at Congregation B’nai Israel, University Synagogue and local fairs, but she recently received a huge Facebook nod from Mayim Bialik, one of the stars from the popular television series The Big Bang Theory. Lisa sent Mayim a few of her pieces and Mayim loved them so much, she and her choir wore them for the High Holidays. Now, Lisa is shipping orders worldwide! These talented artists have added a beautiful energy and meaningful art that will be amazing additions in your home, for wedding and anniversary gifts, or stunning presentation pieces.
