Jewelry Box

When we rolled through Long Beach before the holidays, a friend asked if I would be interested in working on a custom project that was a bit different from my usual work. Given that I've been looking for ways to broaden my horizons, I said 'absolutely.' What she had in mind was a jewelry box, as a gift for a friend of hers.

I had such fun thinking about and creating this box. With the leaves on top, it's obviously in the same vein as my jewelry. But, without access to a torch, I had to think about how to create a 3-D object without soldering together individual pieces.

I ended up fold-forming the box and then attaching the lid with hemp twine.

And, I have to say, I'm beyond thrilled with how it turned out! Thanks Jenny for the creative push. :)

That turned out fantastic! Isn't it wonderful how limitations can lead to creative thinking? Good problem solving :)
