They made the boxes last week and had to finish them at home because we ran out of time in our little 3 hour class. Then this week we fired as soon as class began, polished, patinated and tumbled them prior to adding our custom "jewels". That's a lot to accomplish in three hours.
I really wish I could show you their work, but this is the one I used for my demo. I'm so pleased with the way it turned out. I used laser cut paper, a piece of golden mica and tiny glass "granulation" beads. This will probably go into my shop sometime next week. I called it Chichester because the fretwork reminds me of the beautiful stone tracery that covers the windows at the English cathedral, and also because the Chichester Psalms by Leonard Bernstein is one of my favorite pieces of music. I'm tempted to keep it, but I can't keep everything I fall in love with can I?
