"Gift for my Maid of Honour"

I love love love the work of this artist. This handcrafted jali soapstone vase treasures was a gift for my Maid of Honour at our wedding. I wanted to thank my ladies with something that took human work and consideration and that shared some natural beauty of our world. I was so glad to be able to give back to the artist too. Wow. This vase is gorgeous, beautifully conceived and crafted, maybe best for dried flowers or a small pot inside to hold water. Forever grateful!

"Perfect!"

A small, yet perfect box to store small jewelry or treasures. A conversation piece when placed on a table or shelf in ones home. The intricate carving is beautiful.
