"Hand Made African Wood Mask, 'Akan Beauty'"

I just received this mask June 25, 2016, and it is literally as gorgeous as the picture shows. It looks fantastic in my living room and I will be ordering MORE masks from NOVICA!!

"Excellent piece"

I bought this together with another African mask which I also did a review for. They hang on either side of the fireplace in our house. They are both very distinctive and make excellent decorative pieces but have that feel of handmade items. A lot of guests to our house comment on them.

"Bracelet nicely made"

Nice with black and white outfits but note it was a bit large for my narrow wrist and had to remove a bead.

In fact, as I write this, I realize that I am wearing it right now! Everyone asks me where I got this beautiful necklace. Wear it in summer or winter. It is a neutral necklace that goes with everything.
