From Peruvian artisan Kelvin Maguiña comes this elaborate jewelry box. Crafted out of cedar wood and leather and lined with maroon velveteen, the box features a hand-tooled design of hawks and leaves that are painted in vibrant colors. Beneath the main compartment are three removable drawers, two for small items and one for larger pieces such as bracelets or necklaces.
This artist uses traditional techniques handed down through the generations and/or creates culturally significant items, helping keep these traditions alive.
Kelvin Maguina has received 4 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $800 and the most recent for $1500.
