Details

Suggesting the scenic beauty of the Kashmir valley, this jewelry box mesmerizes with its meticulous floridity. Leaves and petals appear in breathtaking symmetry, as M. Ayub hand-carves the intricate details from walnut wood. The box features a secret locking mechanism and can be opened by sliding the lower front panel of the box to the right side. It also features a removable shelf, maroon velvet lining, and brass hinges. Includes a special niche for storing your favorite ring.

Following in his father's footsteps, Ayub strives to create decorative items of superior quality. He works with Kashmiri walnut wood, which takes between two to three years to dry out completely. He uses no artificial colorings, rubbing the piece with an agate stone prior to applying a wax polish.

"Beautiful craftsmanship!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This kind of master handcrafting is so beautiful but difficult to find in the USA. I was especially touched by M. Ayub?s write up about the Kashmir Valley and how he learned his craft which was historically passed from one generation to the next but attracts fewer and fewer artisans these days. The box is beautifully detailed and I feel fortunate to have stumbled across his work on Novica?s site. Thank you for sharing the gift of your artistic expression and craftsmanship with the world M. Ayub!

Preserving Traditions

Preserving Traditions

Carving walnut wood is a passion for M. Ayub. He loves every aspect of this traditional art that was taught to him as a boy. A single piece can take many years for him to create; the wood must be gathered and carefully preserved before the carving can even begin. Once carved, it must be hand-rubbed with an agate stone to produce a beautiful refined finish. M. Ayub finds that many younger people do not have the patience for this craft and he fears that it is a dying art. He is dedicated to encouraging and motivating others to continue this magnificent Indian traditional craft and he stands ready to teach those willing to learn.
