In 1863, Napoleon intervened in Mexico and the defeat of the French troops in Puebla is the reason behind the 5 de Mayo celebrations. Yet the French influence lives on, and Avenida Reforma in Mexico City was modeled after the Champs-Élysées in Paris. Handcrafted by Ana Maria Gonzalez, this decoupage jewelry box depicts scenes from France. The lid opens to reveal a large compartment, a pop-up tray and a convenient mirror. Beneath is a drawer.
Ana Maria Gonzalez has received 5 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1600 and the most recent for $3400. Proceeds were used to purchase wood, paints, and solvents to increase production.
