ABOUT SHOSHANNA AND JUDITH
Shoshanna has been a customer and admirer of Judith’s for many years.

Shoshanna felt that the best person with whom she could collaborate was the jewelry designer she admired most. “I’ve been a customer and admirer of Judith Ripka for as long as I can remember,” says Shoshanna, “After running into her numerous times around our neighborhood while walking our maltase dogs, we developed a friendship. I respect her as a mother, a business women and an artist. Accessories to me, are what make one’s look their own. It completes a woman’s outfit and expresses who she is, and who she wants to be. I have always wanted to do a jewelry line to complement my Shoshanna collection. It’s been a dream to be working on this business with an icon such as Judith.”
