Jewelry/ Keepsake Boxes: Chatoyance Series
Box 1
wood, mineral specimen
D 8" W 12" H 3.5"

This series of boxes is made with book matched live edge slabs of curly walnut, occasionally with spalting as well, together with curly maple and a mineral specimen, all of which exhibit chatoyance, an optical effect caused by reflection of light from different internal planes. Tiger's eye mineral is an example of a material that has chatoyance. The interiors are lined with black velvet on the bottom, and the bottom surfaces of the boxes are felt covered. Dividers can be made for a small additional charge if desired.
