Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Despite his financial difficulties, the education of his children is always a priority. He works extremely hard crafting gemstone sculptures to be able to provide the education for his three children.

Alexandre has struggled with depression since 2017. On good days, he is able to work and create but, on bad days, he can't get out bed. Although this affects his family and income, it's difficult to overcome. His therapist recommends he continue working with stones, as it helps him relax. So his handcraft is a way of aiding in his recovery.

Alexandre Costa is a stone sculptor and a dedicated father. He is the sole means of support for his two children and he works very hard to provide them with what they need.

Alexandre Costa has received 2 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $800 and the most recent for $600.

"cockatoo to my collection"

This is a great piece of art the colors are beautiful. It looks like a real bird when you look at it. The artist done an amazing job I couldn't be more happier with it. I wish you would offer one a little bigger about 12" tall that would be amazing. Amazing piece of art, you will not be disappointed if you order one.

"Beautiful!!!"

This is the most beautiful bird made of rose quartz that I have ever seen. I am thoroughly happy with it. If the artists makes more just like it, I would love to have them.

"Pink Cocky"

I fell in love with the semi precious stones that was used by Alexander. I am a bit disappointed with the bird it was really flat on one side. It would be good to do a 3D sculpture ( not sure if this is the right way to describe it) to capture the real shape of the bird. Having said that I wouldn't mind getting another cockatoo from Alex e.g. all white , black beak and yellow crown but fuller version of the bird.

"Gorgeous Sculpture?the work of a gifted artisan. "

An outstanding depiction of a tropical bird, with meticulous attention to detail in the carving. The rose quartz is lovely and uniform in color. Feminine and very sweet looking bird with just the right amount of attitude in the tilt of her head. The artist has truly captured the spirit of this lovely bird.
