Nature Brown Jewelry Boxes
Purchased this to give as a gift? but so impressed by the workmanship that am keeping this one for myself. Exquisite carving. Love , too, the unique locking mechanism.
This kind of master handcrafting is so beautiful but difficult to find in the USA. I was especially touched by M. Ayub?s write up about the Kashmir Valley and how he learned his craft which was historically passed from one generation to the next but attracts fewer and fewer artisans these days. The box is beautifully detailed and I feel fortunate to have stumbled across his work on Novica?s site. Thank you for sharing the gift of your artistic expression and craftsmanship with the world M. Ayub!
