The founders and creators of AlefBet by Paula Jewelry are a mother-daughter design team
based in Los Angeles. They are both Jewish mothers, by the way! They create
works of art which people wear next to their skin. Often, these creations honor

with the offer made exclusively on this site. They’ll also add the pink bead to
these two pieces during the month of October.
