Brown Jewelry Boxes
A surprise gift for my husband, and he is very impressed with the artistry and style. I knew he'd like the multiple drawers, and I know they are popular for men. He is afraid of losing the key, so two keys would of been better for us. He is very happy with his surprise.
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!
