About That Pink Jewelry Box
This vintage pink jewelry box was in my last junking post here. I loved the very tarnished mirror in the lid and knew I could do something with it. I turned it up on edge, starting pulling stuff out of my stash and used it as a shadow box, of sorts.
A test tube turned on end and filled with old pearly buttons. The black jet button and gold metal button were both missing the shanks which made them perfect as cabochons. I glued the black one on top of a small Dresden medallion. Two vintage perfume bottles altered and filled with glitter for sparkle and a little Christmas angel because angels aren't just for Christmas.
I "fussy cut" a flower from scrapbook paper. Thank you, Maureen, for that term! The flower dew-drop in the spoon is a tiny glass cabochon. The face is stamped with Staz-On.
Is she not Majestic? The light on her forehead is not camera glare from my camera. It is the way the original photograph looks. Her frame was cut from a Christmas card. A lone pink button in the tube to signify something deeper than I can think.
Words cut from a book page that have been sitting here on my desk for ages, just waiting for the right moment.
And the closed box. Yes, the box still closes as it was found. This will be headed over to my Etsy when I stop procrastinating on listing things.
