Like all of you I have seen agate lacquered boxes pop up on many of my favorite online shops. The $100 plus tag has always detoured me from picking one up, but I knew it could easily be made on the cheap. I picked up the supplies a couple of weeks ago and worked on the project this past weekend. Not only is it less expensive, but it literally took minutes to do.
Here is what you’ll need:
I immediately thought they would make great jewelry boxes. Wouldn’t they be an amazing gift? A chic lacquered jewelry box filled with a necklace, ring or bracelet!
My favorite new jewelry gift is from Keti Sorely Designs. Keti’s shop is filled with amazing personalized/monogrammed jewelry pieces that won’t break the bank. I’ve worked with her in the past and have ordered numerous pieces and I have always been a very happy customer. I was so excited when I got an email from Keti letting me know about her latest necklace. It’s a name plate necklace, which let’s face it every girl has wanted since Carrie rocked hers on Sex & the City, but instead of a generic font it’s done in your handwriting! How cool!
So, I promptly started working on my own name.
I then snapped a photo of my name with my phone and uploaded it on their site.
A week later I got this beauty!
So easy and such a nice personalized gift to give some one. How cute would it be to have your kids sign their names and get necklaces to wear in their handwriting. Or gift a bride to be her new last name in her own handwriting. You could even just do a word (up to 10 letters) and forget about doing a name.
