I BROKE A SILVERPLATE JEWELRY BOX...

WHAT TO DO!

There is a lot to this one, although it is small. Let’s start with the silver jewelry box, so frilly and feminine. On top of the little silver box is a vintage jewelry piece with a small embroidered butterfly, and a miniature bone china puppy. Inside I used a small white crocheted doily as a liner, an onyx jewelry piece and a section from vintage pink pearls. Now for the focal point, I have a large vintage finding with a cabochon stone. On the other side of that, I have this sweet collage. The cut out is from a vintage photograph, a darling little girl holding her doll. I dressed the top of this piece up with a section on a rhinestone bracelet, beautiful.
