"Simple but eye-catching"

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.

The ""happy hippo"" brightened up my day when I wore it. People stopped to compliment me on this beautiful necklace and, of course, I smiled each time. So, it did make me happy and your art work is absolutely perfection. I will be checking oiut your things to see what I can add to my Anna Yawson collection. Thank you.

I received my ""Desire for Peace"" mask today and I have to say that I was extremely happy with my purchase. As a painter and sculptor I can recognize and appreciate the craftsmanship that was put into this piece. Thank you for the opportunity to enjoy your talents and I look forward to your creativity in the future.
