Intended as a her-and-his jewelry box, this was a project designed to use up some architectural submittal samples that were kicking around the office – wood, wire mesh and glass – and construct a box out of mixed-media. The glass lid panels have an iridescent sheen that shimmers and varies as you walk by it, with a mesh of stainless steel right below it, to add texture and detail. Removable stops allow for easy glass replacement in the future, if necessary. The sliding trays also have wire mesh bottoms. It saved a bit of material from going to the dump, so I guess you could call it a “green” project.

Outstanding detail work and a fine use of mixed materials. Like the corner gussets on the sliding trays and the glass and mesh used are fantastic. Black and red bottoms? Perfect. A little long on the non integrated handles? Perhaps. Nice work.
