What materials did you use? Pre loved wooden jewellery box which I painted with metallic paint by Resene and trimmed with Paua shell (Abalone) laminate. Stitched on Belfast 32 count linen using DMC Pearl # 8 & 12 along with variegated pearl, Kreinik braid and Mill Hill petite beads

I love boxes! And this one is absolutely beautiful - such a lot of work in the embroidery, and the box itself is a work of art too! You should be very proud of this and your niece is a lucky lady! Just think - this will be an heirloom to be handed down from generation to generation!

Thanks, yes I must admit I am very proud of this one... it turned out extra special and was so much fun to stitch and paint!
