Floral Jewelry Boxes
Made with such care and loving detail that it is amazing. I love to give these boxes as gifts too as they never fail to impress. The weight and feel to the hand give happiness every time and to look at them is a real treat as not much is made this way anymore.
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!
