Perfect gift for my boyfriend who collects masks. Honestly breathtaking when I first opened it after it arrived.

AN INSTANT FAVORITE!
This piece is beautiful, sturdy, heavy and an absolute winner when it comes to conversation starters. Delivery was SUPER FAST and came with a personalized thank you note from the artist. Novica and the attached artists will always get my business when it comes to stylized pieces like this. Love it!
This is a awesome bracelet. I ve not seen something like this before. Would love to see more creations from the artist. Just one request, if the bracelets could come in 8 or 8.5 that would be great. Will be buying more.
