"Dr. Cheryl Saban has transitioned her classic designer's touch seamlessly into her highly sought after handcrafted items. The Cheryl Saban Designs atelier on Nemo street is a gift shoppers oasis now widely considered one of the best gemstone jewelry and hand blown glass boutiques in West Hollywood."
Each and every one of Saban's designs is carefully crafted with her own hands, making the result of her artisanal talents the perfect unique gift for anyone.
Blowing glass is a kind of mediation for Saban, where she immerses herself in the "flow" experience -the concept of being fully present and conscious in the moment. The design process for Cheryl's glassware is organized and well-thought out. She always has a design in mind before she heads to the hot-shop. She decides in advance which colors she'll use, and generally makes a sketch of the object or vessel she intends to create. She says she's fascinated by the concept of "freezing a design in heat".
Saban rarely approaches her jewelry creative process with a pre-sketched drawing, but rather follows an artistic muse -and a kind of alchemy happens when she gathers her bounty of gemstones and silver and gold items around her. She places her beads, cords, and precious stones on a board, gets inspired by them, and begins to conjure up something beautiful, and one-of-a-kind.
