Shor is the last name I got when I got married

Welcome to the 


A tribute to the plant that helped me heal and deal

Gal Bar El 

Feel free to reach for a magnifying glass and explore the intricate details up close.

Although some may think, Nancy is not my real name. The name Nancy Chains was chosen carefully. Nancy- inspired by Nancy Botwin, the lead character from the show Weeds. Nancy’s character on the show is based on a true wonder woman, Dr. Dina Browner. Dr. Dina was the first in Southern California to start a medical cannabis doctors office and dispensary. The mother Teresa of marijuana. 

Chains was about being the chain that connects people. And each person who owns my art can find a connection to other people and to cannabis, through my work.

The art doesn’t stop once it leaves my studio, the art is the interaction between people and the conversations being had surrounding the truly unique, one of a kind pieces.

Baked Goods

When starting my Nancy Chains Instagram account, I hated calling people “my followers”. The people who follow my art are leaders, shaping the future. I felt like naming you something that you are, is more respectful. Baked Goods! Because you’re baked, and you’re good!

that package though

Clear packaging shows the heart

With climate change and with education, my view on my art shifted tremendously to making sure that every piece being produced is extremely purposeful and meaningful. Things in my studio are for the most part, not single use, and I wanted to carry that all the way from the beginning of my artistic process, to the last step and my art’s last destination, which is with you! The packaging is designed so you can display a cannabis nug in it, to be shown, appreciated, and represented clearly.

Have you gotten to the aluminum business card?

This is Jane Project hosts a compassion program for survivors without access to receive cannabis, and I am one of the people in the program. The LA chapter meets at the dispensary Fountain of Wellbeing. The dispensary has a grow that can be seen through a glass window from inside of the shop. 

These necklaces were created from leaves collected at Fountain of Wellbeing, as a tribute to a full circle.
