1. Wood sculpture, ‘Everlasting Kiss’ (Indonesia). This face to face, a couple kneels in a kiss. This would be a perfect wedding gift too!! Truly a lovely Wood Sculpture.
2. Handblown art glass sculpture, ‘Jade and Amber Power’ (Brazil) from Brazil. The colors of this Murano Inspired Sculpture would be stunning on the mantel. This sculpture is achieved with time-honored blown glass techniques that are executed by hand.
3. Alpaca cardigan Snow Duchess (Peru) This long loose fitting cardigan screams warm and cuddly! Warm and elegant made with a blend of baby alpaca, the fleece of the season’s first shear.
4. Wood sculpture, ‘Love, Head Over Heels’ (Indonesia) I love the description of this sculpture. Love turns hearts head over heels!! Isn’t that the truth!! Inspired by the sculpture from Bali’s Eka, it’s hand carved from suar wood.
5. Blown glass pitcher with ice chamber, ‘Fresh Ocean’ (Mexico). with ice chamber. The pitcher is crafted by hand with artistic expertise in the Mexican tradition of blown glass. So stunning!!

7. Window To My Heart. This wooden jewelry box for all of her treasures! This carved box is created with walnut wood by hand.
8. Ceramic coffee pot, ‘Margarita’ (Guatemala). I can’t quite put my finger on what it is about this coffee pot that appeals to me so much! Is it the flowers? The bright cheerful design? Or the fact that Mom would think of me every time she pours a cup of coffee from this hand painted ceramic coffee pot crafted in Guatemala.
9. Gift from the SeaCarved Wood Turtle Wine Bottle Holder Nyoman Karsa has sculpted this stunning piece from suar wood for a uniquely Balinese table accessory. Don’t forget to add a bottle of wine! Mom’s like wine!
