A-Z Challenge; T is for Treasure Box


A to Z Challenge; T is for Treasure Box

I made this mosaic treasure box as a jewelry box about 3 or 4 months ago. It’s supposed to be for kids to make but I was taken by the sparkles and jewels and decided that I wanted to make it for myself. I love to make mosaics and so I worked on it a little at a time. I don’t know if you can tell from the photo, but it has butterflies and dragonflies on it, big ones and little ones. There were no directions (which I loved); just the jewels and sparkles and go to it. The little jewels were the hardest because they were the ones that got stuck on my fingers and wouldn’t come off and get stuck onto the box. I got to decided which colors went where and which jewels went where and it was so much fun. I am using it for my many earrings. I call it my treasure box because it is more than just a jewelry box because I put so much work into it. I love it!

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
