I found this Awesome Ormolu Style Box in need of a Top and a Bottom and it also had a cracked Glass Panel but I knew I could absolutely create something wonderful from it that could still be passed down for generations along with whatever treasures are kept inside.
I made a hinged lid with this really pretty shell and adorned it with Faux Pearls and Sparkly Bits. Sweet Scenes are to be found around the sides in these wonderful old round Picture Frames. I put a metal bottom in and fashioned a small pillow to set your treasures on. The Lid opens in the front by lifting the Mother of Pearl Decorative Tab as to not put stress on the decorative pearls that spray around the shell.
This piece is so pretty and would make a lovely Presentation Gift Box for a special gift or just make a great conversation piece in a Guest Room or Bath. My Gram is going on 105 years old and she always had Special Hand Decorated Shells for Soap and Towels with something Stitched on them in the Bathroom.
It was a lot of fun putting this together, I used wire and Industrial glue.
Measures 6 1/2 inches at widest by about 4 1/2 inches high.
A Fun Fantasy Box I hope you will enjoy!
