Hand decorated round box for treasures / Handverzierte runde Schachtel für Schätze.

A long time ago I got a round bentwood box with the idea of using it as a set for an easter egg. Unfortunately, the egg with its shape does not fit into this box. ;P In the end, it serves me as a keepsake box for my Rosary. :D The lid is decorated with rice […]

Finally, I have managed to show you a Christmas decoration that I planned to create for a long time. An inspiration to make this ornament was Sylwia Serwin.

Christmas Ornament – Silver Heart / Weihnachtsverzierung – Silber Herz.

Schlagmetal is an interesting material to work with. It is sold as leaves or as tiny scrap pieces. I have worked with both of them and found more convenient to work with leaves. The surface is more smooth and looks more elegant.  It imitates precious metals very well. :) I guess it must be also […]
