Elaborate floral and leaf motifs adorn this jewelry box by Peruvian artisan Kelvin Maguiña. Handcrafted out of cedar wood and tooled leather, the box is lined with maroon velveteen and features a mirror on the inside of the lid. Beneath the main compartment are three removable drawers, two for small items and one for larger pieces such as necklaces or bracelets.
This artist uses traditional techniques handed down through the generations and/or creates culturally significant items, helping keep these traditions alive.
Kelvin Maguina has received 4 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $800 and the most recent for $1500.
This is beautifully carved. Gave this to my wife as anniversay gift. I was a little disappointed that the leather strap used to prevent top from opening too far was dry rotted. I am going to try some leather conditioner on it as it is cracked pretty bad. Such a shame all that work went into this product just to overlook a strap.
