"Nothing like it!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Every special set of earrings or rings - those small favorite things of ours always at the risk of getting lost - needs a special box that WONT get lost or fail to get our notice (with a smile. Its hard not to smile back to this wee turtle!!). The box is light, almost the lightness of one of those oldfashioned wooden planes kids used to fly. The painting itself is exquisitely playful, playfully lovely, whimsical. I gave this jewelry box as a gift~ and, upon visiting the recipient, I was delighted to see the wee turtle given center stage surrounded by lights!

Turtles are my favorite creatures and butterflies are my Mom?s favorite creatures, so the two together are very special to me. The artwork is gorgeous and puts a smile on my face everyday I look at it.

"Love this turtle!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

It is very well made and the detail and colors are wonderful. Its a little hard to take apart if you want to use it as a place to store jewelry or whatever ... and as a storage container, it is a bit small. But I bought it just as an interesting and vibrant decoration.

"Very artistic"

Im a big fan of these hand-carved and painted dolls. I do wish the paintings were different instead of the rabbits being identical, but that doesnt take away from the quality or workmanship.

I bought this for my daughter. She is going to love it. It is stunning. It may be a jewelry box, but it is far more. It is a decorative piece that can be placed in any room in the house.
