Twining in lavish arabesques, ivy sends delicate tendrils and leaves in every direction. The lavish designs are embossed on leather to grace an extraordinary jewelry box. Oscar Pastor crafts the keepsake chest by hand and covers it with polychrome gilded motifs. The chest features five drawers with wrought iron pulls and a mirror inside the lid.
Oscar suffered from depression and worry about not being able to support his family. He would walk on the streets, going door to door trying to sell his designs. His income has increased over three times since joining Novica and he is now able to rely on the sales of his designs to pay for household essentials and to support his daughters' educations.
Since the introduction of handcrafted leather by the Spaniards during the colonial period, Peruvian culture has added its own twist with cultural designs and local materials. Oscar uses the traditions of handcrafted leather in his work, keeping the technique alive for future generations to enjoy.
Oscar's sales help provide and support his two daughters' education, giving them access to opportunities they didn't have before.
Oscar treasures his two daughters, Cheli and Maria Jose, and he does everything he can to provide a better life for them.
This jewelry box is amazing! Very nice done, beautiful art work. I got it because I needed to store all my jewelry I bought from Novica (which is all beautiful), and it looks very nice on my dresser. Also, it arrived in free gift wrapping, which was was amazing work with very special details. Thank you so much for creating this art!
