What are you most proud of? It's really a challenge to make both halves fit and sit flush to each other. It took a few attempts and several practice pieces, but finally I'm entirely happy with it. Both halves fit almost perfectly all around the box and I love the combination of silver, smoky quartz and pearls.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Begin with the shape Mary shows in her tutorial. Hinge and clasp need practice. Then experiment with different shapes and different weaves. Mary shows some awesome pieces on her old blog, http://www.theangstyartist.blogspot.de/, mostly in the 2010 archive section.

Thank you! I still love the trinket boxes, hehehe. Right now I'm try to make one with a cabochon incorporated into the lid. Mary is such a wonderful designer!
