Janis Cash Weisberg with husband, granddaughter and granddogs
Janis first became interested in decorative arts while majoring in Art History at Mary Washington College. Her interest in hand painted porcelain was further inspired while working in her family’s antiques business. She began studying over glaze porcelain painting more than 25 years ago and then had the great privilege to study porcelain painting in Italy on several occasions.
Janis started beading 15 years ago. She has always enjoyed collecting and working with semi precious stones, pearls and unusual beads. in more recent years her interest in numerology and gematria (the ancient study of the numerical value of letters in words) has led her to create jewelry incorporating personal symbolism for the wearer.
Janis is the sole owner of Celebrate Life 18, formerly Kate Marley & Co. Much of her work is Judaic in nature and this gives Janis fulfillment. “I receive great spiritual satisfaction from creating works that have meaningful significance to others.”
