This exquisite jewelry chest from Peru features finely detailed bird and floral motifs, crafted from hand-tooled leather by Jesus Soliz, who adds an incredibly colorful palette to the creation. He crafts the jewelry box by hand from cedarwood with eight drawers for keeping things organized. The top opens to an even larger compartment for storing valuable items, with a mirror conveniently situated on the inside of the lid.
This artist uses traditional techniques handed down through the generations and/or creates culturally significant items, helping keep these traditions alive.
Jesus Soliz has received 3 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $2000 and the most recent for $2200.
