"Lovely Box"

This is unique and lovely. The image just seems to glow. The detail is beautiful. The image is vibrantly colored. The box is very well made. This is for my niece who loves sea turtles and I'm considering buying the manatee box for myself.

"Sea Turtle Jewelry Box"

This item is a gift for Christmas, so it hasn't been opened yet. I'm sure it is quite lovely as I had purchased the Manatee box a few years back and it is very nice.
