"Lovely"

I received this jewlery box for my birthday. And I really adore it. It has lots of space, although I think the drawers should be wider rather than so tall. I dont agree with the price being this high. A price range closer to $175-$200 is much more on point.

Treasured since colonial times, Peruvian leather work is a difficult and demanding art form. Characterized by high relief, it is a style requiring precision and years of practice. At age 12, under the tutelage of his uncle, a master craftsman, Julio began to study the art by learning to apply the final finish to his uncle's pieces. Seeing his love of the craft and his dedication, his uncle began to teach him leather tooling at age 16. To this day. Julio has never tired of his art. He continues to practice and perfect the art of Peruvian leather work, often training many of the artisans, past and present, employed by his workshop.
