Jewellery Boxes
Please note that the interior of any box can be customised with your choice of tray, divisions within that tray and lining material
‘Vortex’ Series X
This shallow jewellery box is another ‘vortex’ variant, this time with an ebony handle and with wenge feet. The pattern is cut in burr walnut and is karellian birch and maple burr. The tray is maple and lined with faux suede. The interior of the lid is ripple sycamore inlaid with macassar ebony.
Size: 33cm x 22cm x 5cm
Price: £975 - Available to order
‘Waves’ Series VI
The ‘wave’ inlay pattern of this jewellery box runs diagonally across the box and is formed from ripple sycamore and masur birch, with a walnut handle and feet.
Size: 22cm x 17cm x 8cm
Price: £695 - Available to order
‘Vortex’ Series IX
A variant of the full ‘vortex’ pattern in lighter burr walnut with masur birch inlay and maple burr centre. Each time I make this the pattern is slightly different and the combination of woods unique, as the process of cutting the veneer destroys the templates I use, so I have to redraw it each time and I never repeat it exactly. The interior is fitted with a removable tray and this example is fitted with a high quality solid brass lock.
Size: 27cm x 22cm x 7cm
Price: £1150 - Available to order
‘Waves’ Series III
Jewellery box with veneers of graduated colours, starting with ebony, then to burr walnut, figured mahogany, burr maple, masur birch and ripple sycamore. The handle is solid bronze set in ebony and the feet are maple.
Size: 28cm x 22cm x 8cm
Price: £945 - Available to order
‘Vortex’ Series IV
A simpler variant of the ‘vortex’ pattern, with figured walnut veneer the background for masur birch and amboyna inlay
Size: 18cm x 18cm x 7cm
Price: £675 - Available to order
‘Vortex’ Series I
The first of my most successful series of boxes, the vortex inlay shows off the complexity that can be achieved with simply a scalpel and time. The masur birch inlay intertwines around an amboyna centre in a black walnut burr ground.
Size: 25cm x 20cm x 8cm
Price: £1150 - Available to order
‘River’ Series VIII
This example is one variant of a very successful design that I have made in several different wood combinations. This is in pommelle sapele and satinwood, both of which are antique veneers intended for a refit of The Queen Mary and never used. Hence the quality is exquisite and the colour impossible to replicate in a modern veneer. I do have some of it left, so I can make a few more variants.
Size: 22cm x 15cm x 7cm
Price: £495 - Available to order
‘River’ Series V
The masur birch that is the main veneer for this box is framed by some very evenly coloured macassar ebony to achieve a subtle art deco inspired look. The interior is fitted with a removable jewellery tray in cherry.
Size: 17cm x 23cm x 7cm
Price: £495 - Available to order
‘Vortex’ Series - Catherine Wheel I
