We had a chat about the rough size and design and then I left him to it. This week he presented me with a small wooden box, which just needed to be lined to finish it off.
I had some navy velvet material in my stash which was perfect. I used thin card to wrap the material round for the side panels and some foam to fill the lid space.It's come out so well and it's a lovely space to store my special beads. I feel they will be safe in there (and there is room for more...).
