A Reproduction Jewel Casket for Lydia Ann, Inspiration images.

After two years of acquiring jewelry for Lydia Ann I have decided that she needs a place to keep it all in. Basically this happened after I went looking for one of her pieces and it fell out on my floor from between some random objects.


A jewel casket is needed.

This next casket just inspired me with the gold and what I presume is tortoise shell or faux tortoise shell.


The shape:

Stay tuned for the finished product!
