I chose to review the Ate Grass Serving Tray from Bali. After I opened the package, I was so impressed. The tray smelled so earthy, foreign, and almost delicious. It is incredibly beautiful. I cannot believe that it was handmade. I imagine this serving tray taking quite some time, skill, and patience. I have it displayed in my guest bath and it is really breathtaking. The ate grass weave is tight and very well made. I love it.
I also received the Teak Jewelry Box, 'Royal Elephant' from Thailand. I have been wanting a small jewelry box for quite some time to keep my fun rings and earrings in, but hadn't found one I loved until I saw this one at NOVICA. I love the gorgeous elephant on the aluminum panel, making this jewelry box unique and special.
The inside of the box is lined with velvet and has slots for rings and a square for other jewelry. It is perfect for me and have already really enjoyed using it.
