Cocobolo ‘Moon’ box

This was a lovely commission to make a presentation box for an exquisite silver moon, just 25mm in diameter.

I used solid Cocobolo, carved to house the moon snugly between the lid and the base. I used a 25mm stainless steel bearing to test for a perfect fit.

The solid stainless steel hinges echoed the silver of the moon and contrasted well with the rich colours of the Cocobolo.

The finished silver moon nestling into the base of the box. The moon is a stunning example of work by a very gifted silversmith.
