Cicada Trinket box

- by Christina Kapono aka MandarinMoon

This week's theme: The Bugs of Summer

The weather is warm, there is food - it's time for them to do their thing.


Art: Cicada Trinket box  by Artist Christina Kapono aka MandarinMoon
I've decorated this hinged wooden trinket box with polymer clay and iridescent red glass gems all surrounding a hand-tooled piece of copper with the raised image of a Cicada in the center. After curing the clay it was painted with metallic paints in antique gold, emerald and Grecian gold

The lower portion of the box was painted with acrylics and decorative textured paper dresses up the bottom. A dangly Sun and Moon earring adorns the front and the box is held closed by strong tiny magnets. The finished piece is lightweight but durable.

It measures 5" x 5" x 2.5"

For sale in my Etsy shop!
