So this really kind of like our Maine thing. We really love it when one of our clients asks us to create something special for them.

We Design All Sorts of Ways July 9, 2018 14:49
So at B. Berish we started out making jewelry that featured images under cabochons. But at the heart of it, we are designers. So when a customer has a need, we figure a design and then get it done.
When our good friends at Just Jersey in Morristown, NJ wanted to update their local town and state themed T shirts, they came to us. B. Berish handled everything, including our in house designing skills and our great range of knowledge in having things custom fabricated. These shirts are hand screened using eco-friendly water based inks, printed on super soft stylish fabric.

We Made This... November 9, 2017 11:17
For The New York Tenement Museum
One of New York's most fascinating places, is the Lower East Tenement Museum. The museum is located at 97 Orchard Street on the corner of Delancey Street, offers tours of the actual apartments that were occupied by generations of immigrant working families that lived there. Since the building's construction in 1863, people from all nationalities came into New York and each apartment is faithfully restored to recreate the world of the actual people that lived there. Through the incredibly precise and informative guided tours, you can see and hear the residents actual stories.
In order to bring life to the words and artifacts, the Lower East Tenement Museum asked B. Berish to interpret the images that are most closely associated with New York City and immigrant life.
Using the museum's own images we create a series of 30x40mm brooches, which enhance the imagery with magnifying glass cabochons.
By using the the focal point of the museum's "Sweat Shop" tour, we created an enamel pin featuring the Pink Dress, which has a prominent place in the sewing room. B. Berish also custom designed the card the pin is mounted on, which has additional historic information on the back.
And then there are the popular 1" pin back buttons, that features Lower East Side favorites like Pretzels and Hot Dogs, a girl jumping rope and a little downtown yiddish. Not to forget you are in Manhattan, there is the Chrysler Building and the Statue of Liberty.
Our experience with the great folks of the Lower East Side Tenement Museum continues to be an exciting and creative one, we always look forward to working with them.
B. Berish always love discussing new projects, so get in touch, maybe we can make something for you.
We Do Custom November 23, 2016 16:26
You know many people have often told us what we do is interesting, compelling, thought provoking and cool. But sometimes they want something that's just not in our regular catalog of settings and designs. Also, our customers like to have things they can offer that no one else has.
So when we get asked, the answer is yeah, we do custom. Just take a look here on the left. This is a sweet seltzer bottle pin on a custom designed card for Raymond's, that has restaurant locations in Montclair and Ridgewood, NJ (BTW, the breakfast burrito is one of our Saturday morning favs). If you know Raymond's you know the seltzer bottle is an iconic symbol of the place, so it only made sense for them to have their own exclusive, unique seltzer bottle.
The Pennsylvania Ballet has had us create many custom things for them as well. Every year around holiday time they put on their famous production of George Balanchine's Nutcracker, on the right the Plum Fairy pendant we have produced for them, using an image of their own dancers in a scene from their production. In addition to the pendant, we have also created a line featuring earrings, bracelets and a custom designed button card.
This one is a project was designed and created for the U.S. Capital Visitors Center, you know the place where all Senators and Congressmen/women do their thing. We were asked to take one of there iconic cherry blossoms and the Capital Building images, put it in one of our silver plated cast settings and design a package around it. On the left is a sample of the large pendant necklace on the custom designed card we made for them. We also made a small necklace, earrings and cuff links for them.
Oh yes, I could go on to show all of the other things we have designed and developed for retailers, museums, historical societies, businesses, wedding parties ans other functions, but then this would be a really long post. But if you need something custom designed in any of the things we normally make jewelry, cards, enamel pins and charms or even something you don't see like T-Shirts, hats or tea towels, let us know, we can do it. We love brainstorming so just call over.
Top Dogs October 30, 2016 17:23
Well, that’s kind of what happened with our Top Dogs collection. For a long time the idea was just some little embers sitting in the back of the fireplace, then came along our friend, Mario at Precious Accents, who finally helped blow a little oxygen over the embers, which ignited the flame. So now, we have a line of 100 top dog breeds available on his expansive website.
