From Peruvian artisan Kelvin Maguiña comes this elaborate and colorful jewelry box. Handcrafted out of cedar wood and leather, the box is lined with maroon velveteen and features three removable drawers beneath the main compartment. Hummingbirds and flowers are hand-tooled on the lid and sides of the box and painted in vibrant colors.
