    It is derived from the adjective "šikovný", which means skilful, handy, smart...

    thanks, you got me on the right track, then I found šikovný may be "cute"

    Yes, it can (and in Moravia it is), but "šikulka" is usually used to appreciate someone's skill or ability.

    "Šikulka" also means a jack-of-all-trades.
