A very dear friend of mine called Kim has had a long association with a red star design. I first saw it in a mozaic she has (2nd picture). RedStarKim is also her twitter address and there is a tattoo of the red star on her arm (pic 3). Recently she commissioned me to make her a box using this design.
The above is the result. Based on the large, black outlined, red star in the mosaic the star is Padauk with an Ebony outline (3mm thick). This is set in a Sycamore background. The box is Ebony, mitred corners, with
a drop-on lid and measures approx 96mm x 94mm x 50 mm .
Making the star was the trickiest part but then I do like a challenge.
