The shaping was beautiful and the painting was marvelous. The closer I look at my shadow puppets, the more there is to admire. Thanks to the artist.

"Beautiful"

These stars are so individually unique and beautiful. I love the different colors and patterns. I am keeping these or myself, but will probably purchase more for Christmas gifts. I highly recommend them. They are every bit as lovely as in the on-line photos.

This is a really unique and lovely box. I love how the four pieces together make a shape. I keep one nice bracelet in each of the four compartments. This is a nice big size with intricate artistry.

"Beautiful color and design"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

These look great on the table whether theyre in use or stored in their holder. One of the coasters in the set I received had a bit of a faded dark patch on the surface, but the design was still easily visible and beautiful regardless.
