The Story of Me…
Yes, I am a former (and perhaps future) silverware chest, handed down from mother to daughter, reimagined for a time as holder of jewels. Now remade to be open to a myriad of possible uses: silverware, beautiful writing tools, jewelry, treasures... the mind wanders in all the potential. My design is based on an origami tessellation, which means: arrangement of shapes closely fitted together, especially of polygons in a repeated pattern without gaps or overlapping. As always, the original idea morphed into something unexpected and Sarah, experienced at the movement of a piece during the process, just went for it! Yes I am an original and hand painted! I look forward to being a faithful holder of whatever treasure you bestow upon me.
