What a lovely theme - jewel colours and gold. Over on Gingersnaps this challenge is running till March 20th.
For my first take on it, I decided to take the theme literally. I started off with a little round tin which once held throat lozenges.
I worked on the lid and sides with structure paste in pearl white, gold satin, and antique gold, sprinkling on some gold glass glitter (Viva Color) before it was dry.
The rim of the tin has been polished with inka gold to change the colour without making it difficult to put the lid back on. Then I decorated it with some gem stones in regal colours, and added the top of an old perfume bottle - which has long disappeared! -to the middle, to make the lid look like a crown.
I stuck some gold net from an old evening stole inside the box, to make a sort of nest, and filled it with some old costume jewelry from my Mother.
It was, as always, great fun to make, and will make another nice memory box for those little keepsakes, instead of having them in a dark drawer somewhere.
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
