It’s a gift for a family friend’s daughter.She turned seventeen years last days.Gemini are often called the butterfly of the zodiac so i tried to customize it with a butterfly and a rose on the lid.Thanks!

My daughter would be thrilled to get such a nice jewelry box with an inlaid butterfly on it. Nice work. What is the dark circle in the mitered corners? A spline of sorts? It definitely caught my eye as a unique and interesting detail.

Thank you all! I’m glad you liked my little approach. EarlS: those are holes filled with glue.The purpose was to increase the soldering surface of corners.I wanted to avoid classical splines.

I like the clean and simple design of the box and the marquetry is the icing on the cake.
