Depending on the size I think it was fww that showed how to turn an eyeglass case which looked really nice. Otherwise I think a combination could look good. Just need 2 flat pieces for the top and bottom bigger around then you need the cut out a matched set of oval rings that can be glued to each board and that match each other. Glue each to a board, cut the boards to match the outsides of the rings and round over all edges and corners with a file. Just need to join the two sides with some brass hinges and i’d go with a small magnet for the clasp. It is what you do with the top and bottom boards that will determine the level of decoration. Maybe some stringing running through it or make them from a small intarsia style piece you can slice thickness wise to have a matching top and bottom. I’d make the top and bottom pieces thinner and not carve out the inside of them but rely on the rings that make the sidewalls for the necessary depth.
