Making Jewelry Boxes

 


Visitors: 427

Handcrafted jewelry boxes are a specialty item. It takes a lot of skill and hard work to create the exquisite pieces that we see for sale in shops. The first step is to decide upon the design and type of wood to be used. And once the actual making process starts innovative ideas creep in and the readied piece is often different but much better than the original idea. The only exceptions are customized boxes where strict instructions are adhered to . Then comes the all important finish that can make or break the value of a handcrafted wooden jewelry box. Several coats of special natural oils are rubbed in. This enhances the natural color of the wood and enlivens the grain.

Jewelry boxes are made of several materials including plastic and metal. These are made on a large scale and the bulk manufacturing of a single design, shape and color is very common.

Some of us have a penchant for doing things by ourselves. Creating something from scratch can be a very satisfying experience. Craft stores have a wide range of equipment and accessories that can provide all the items needed for almost any project. Jewelry boxes are one of the items that people love to make on their own. The main advantage of this is that individual specifications can be catered to in a satisfactory manner. Those with carpentry skills can easily make jewelry boxes out of pieces of wood left over from other projects.

Children love working with their hands and creating something nice and pretty. They find the very prospect of creating a whole piece that will be of some practical use to be very thrilling. Several toy shops and craft stores carry jewelry box kits. With the basic box outline provided these kits allow children to add features and decorate their boxes using the material provided. Such kits make lovely gifts for girls.
