The Scallop Box

The Scallop Jewelry Box was inspired by a sunset walk along a pacific coast beach in Panama. The sculpted lid represents many of the shells I found during the walk.

The shape of the scallop is known as 'pecten', a Latin word for comb. Pliny, a Roman philosopher, gave scallops the name because their round outline with ribs radiating outwards reminded him of a style of comb popularly used during the Roman Empire.

Each piece is painstakingly finished and individually signed using a v-carve technique. They are lined with genuine Ultrasuede leather and feature abalone/paua shell for the inlay. This box is a perfect sizes for watches, necklaces, bracelets, small desk accessories, etc.

Woods: Cocobolo and African Wenge
