Double Heart Paperweight


Any day is Valentine’s Day when you share your love with one of these delightful little kisii stone paperweights. In assorted hues of red, yellow, turquoise and lime green, each is hand-carved and decorated with a sassy heart pattern. Kisii soapstone, found only in Kenya, is a soft stone, easy to carve into many forms. Its satiny finish is achieved through multiple stages of sanding, followed by waxing. In some cases, as with this piece, artisans also apply colour.
