Upcycled Wooden Box

Recycled wooden box cleaned up and made into a stained glass mosaic blue violet trinket box.

Custom Mosaic Jewelry Box

Custom mosaic jewelry box made with jewelry and favorite flowers — yellow tulips and blue hydrangea.
A wooden box was finished with clear polyurethane. I then made a design sketch of yellow tulips and blue hydrangea that incorporates some jewelry — earrings, pins and pearls — that has a sentimental value to the client. Blue and yellow stained glass mosaic is hand cut and grouted dark charcoal. Some jewelry pieces are set into the grout, and some are mounted on the mosaic.

Upcycled wooden box

I found this beautiful wooden box in a thrift shop and gave it a little touch of mosaic. This box has a distressed wood appearance, man-made marks to look old and worn out, and decorative touches of metal corners. Its hinges allow 180 degree opening. I cleaned this box up and added a light coat of varnish to brighten up and give fresh look.

…and created a nautical abstract mosaic design — a little orange sailboat surrounded by blue-green ocean waves. Each glass piece is hand cut and glued to glass-base box cover, grouted light grout and sealed.
