Join SF Etsy member Armani Mondragón in celebrating Valentine’s Day with Folk Art Nichos. In Mexican folk art, Nichos, or shadow boxes, come in all sizes - even tiny matchbox sizes making wonderful heartfelt gifts. They can be personalized for any holiday or occasion, and Armani has created her own pattern to simplify covering the outside with beautiful decorative paper.

Armani Mondragón is the owner and artist behind Retablos, named after the Mexican iconographic art form. Her work stands on the cusp of Mexican Folk Art and a dream world of what was, what is and all the maybes in between.
