I love doing these tiny ring/trinket boxes! This one has the traditional Irish claddagh design with hands holding a heart adorned with a crown - the hands represent friendship, the heart represents love, and the crown represents loyalty. Clients have ordered this box to present an engagement ring, for use by a ring-bearer in a wedding or just as a great and affordable way to collect an itty bitty piece of original art. One person even suggested using one as a "tooth fairy" box!
About my ring boxes:
* exterior measures 2⅛" x 1⅝" x 1¼"h, and closes with a brass flip catch and an exterior brass hinge (other sizes and styles available)
*Claddagh design is carefully burned into the tiny wooden lid and then hand-painted (it takes more time and care to do these teeny tiny boxes than the standard small boxes)
*exterior is painted in black (other colors available) and finished with a high gloss varnish
*interior edge, inside of lid and bottom of box are matte black
*NEW FEATURE! Interior of this box can be flocked for a soft black velvet texture!
*closes with brass hinge and hasp
