This is a custom made jewellery box decorated with marquetry art.In the front of the box I glue a shell venner on a white wood and handmade cut the name of the owner of the box.For the orchid on the top of the box I use galalith sheet(casein sheet) some mother of pearl pieces for the buds and palisandre and ebony for the branches also handmade.
