Lily of the valley box

A commission to make a jewelry-box with Lily of the Valley decoration. It is a big, pretty heavy box and I hope I did good work on it (because it’s already in the post and slowly approaching its destiny).


Used:
Big wooden jewelry box with two trays
Lily of the Valley napkin
Amsterdam acrylic paints
Stamperia colla per decoupage
Stamperia Vernice protettiva lucida
Koh-i-noor acrylic varnish


White cup, painted blue

A white cup, painted and baked to make the paint water/wather/dishwasher proof.

1. Stages of painting:

2. Different angles shots of the finished piece:


Santa Claus, beaded

Two beaded figures of Santa Claus, done for commission.


Flower bowl (FIMO)

This bowl was made by sticking tiny slices of FIMO millefiori canes on a metal bowl. It was baked and then removed from the bowl, giving it a nice, shiny inner surface.


Black floral wrapping – pendant

Aescetic black wire and white bead combination. Black wire gives high contrast with silver-lined white beads, and I quite like the effect.


LonelineS – pendant

One, lonely S on white, silver-lined glass bead. All wire clear copper.


Black and white pencil jar (FIMO)

Transparent white FIMO and black FIMO; in flower millefiori canes. Plus a recycled preserves jar. Together they make a pretty pencil jar or a lantern, if a tealight is used.
