Jewel box for my daughter
My inside out beautiful daughter Mathilde is now fourteen and in Denmark it’s tradition you have your confirmation at this age if you want to become a member of the Christian church.
She as most other teens were wishing for a MacBook, jewelry and other wonderful pling stuff of our consumer world, so yes she got some green for that, but I found that I needed to make her something with my hands, something my head had designed and that I could put my love into.
So knowing she has a soft spot for delicate boxes, likes little secrets and was wishing for jewels, I thought it must be the right thing to make her a jewel box.

Hope it can be to some inspiration or even a smile of joy,
