With its gracious design and radiant color, this exquisite chest evokes an antique treasure. Antonio Rojas carves, crafts and paints it by hand to hold jewelry. A fine pattern of ferns and gilt enhances the beauty of this elegant box.
Antonio Rojas has received 11 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $300 and the most recent for $1100. Proceeds were used to stock up on materials to craft his products, and also to invest in tools for his workshop.
This artist uses traditional techniques handed down through the generations and/or creates culturally significant items, helping keep these traditions alive.
The wood is heavy and well-crafted. Drawers are wide and deep enough to store much of my jewelry and the side panels for pendants and necklaces are great.
