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).

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