Wooden marquetry box hand made by Jo Ann Hopkins. I call this box “Silky Leaves” because the box is made of silky oak which is a lovely wood to work. The leaves and background of the top of the box are made with a variety of veneers. The marquetry design is from a botanical art painting of gum leaves I painted recently. The box has a tray in it so it can be used for a jewellery box or a box for your desk or to put special letters or documents in. It also looks good just sitting on a table! The bottom of the tray and the bottom of the box are lined in dark grey velvet.
