Beaded elephant

I was very pleased with my beaded elephant sculpture. I had seen them while in South Africa while I was there but didn’t have room to pack it. Very happy to have found a website where I could purchase one. It’s just what I wanted.

The Gorgeous Decoupage Ostrich Egg Has Arrived!

It is breathtaking, made so well and perfectly, that normally I would not have been able to afford such a beautiful gift for my beloved daughter. But, along with the superior talent of the individual who crafted this item, the price was extremely affordable and well worth the expense. Plus, I also purchase the African, giraffe, which goes so well with it. She has not seen it yet, I have placed it where it will be a great surprise, in her sitting room shelf. Thank you very, very much. I will be sure to purchase from your site again. Have a great life.

Great hand crafted product

As expected and surprisingly fast shipping from S Africa. Excellent workmanship and attention to detail. Product differed slightly from photos (I think that was mentioned in the description). For example, large green marbles are the eyes and the expression is different than photo. All in all great product, thanks!

Satisfied Customer

I purchased Hippo pewter tablecloth weights. I have had others in the past that I keep in my picnic basket. I have been frustrated as they never seem heavy enough when there is any appreciable wind. These Hippo weights are fantastic. The Heaviest I have ever had and they look fabulous as well. I like the way they are constructed, the way they function and how they look. My husband liked them so much he wants me to buy another set. Thanks for such a great product.
