Annie-That must be a really lovely and special necklace to need a
The box in the photos was made by my friend Soren Clark. I made the
catch and insides. Uh oh yeah, and the tomato too.
I made the insides of my box with some Styrofoam chunks that were
used for shipping something else. I carved the seat for the tomato
with wax burs and a scalpel. I then covered with silk. I used a
traditional hat blocking steam technique to get the silk to conform
to the seat of the tomato in the styrofoam. I covered the damp
steamed fabric with plastic wrap and placed the piece in the
indentation over night to dry into shape.
Send me photos of your piece and it’s box when you’re done. Have fun
and make lots of jewelry.
How can I share files and pictures with the list?
Or… send the files to the attention of firstname.lastname@example.org and
we will upload them for you…
