"Simple but eye-catching"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

My sister and her husband collect ethnic masks, and this one is unlike any they have. I liked that its so narrow, which should make it easy to find a place for it. Also, their other masks are mostly bare wood, and the color on this gives it more of a presence, even though its smaller than their other pieces.

A truly unique ornament to be cherished forever. The attention to detail can be noted in the beadwork and color choices.

"Perfect for the Hippo Lover!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Anna Yawson has carved a magnificent hippo! The necklace is adjustable and will make the perfect and unique gift for my daughter, who collects hippos. It is definitely one of a kind and she has nothing like it. She will be thrilled with Annas wonderful craftsmanship!
