Banksia Keepsake Box
Handmade Banksia Keepsake Box is from the Australian Banksia Seed. When the flower goes to seed it forms an enormous Seed Pod the size of a large cucumber and similar in shape to a giant American pinecone. The oval shapes are where the seed come out of the Pod and I filled the openings with brass for the unusual effect. These giant Pods are great for making unique items. This box features exotic wood trim for the vessel and the lid. Great Keepsake for jewelry items left on a nightstand. Inside dimensions are 1 3/4 inch diameter by 3 1/2 inches deep. Overall size is 2 1/4 inch diameter x 4 1/2 inches high.
Extremely unique and wonderful earth tone colors.
Perfect small box to keep jewelry safe on a nightstand. Never have to search for your rings and earrings again. Just use this box and your problems are solved.
Great gift for a best friend, Birthday Gift, Anniversary Gift, Teacher Gift.
Not many wood artists can make this item or have access to getting the seed pod so you are getting something very unusual.

Care for your Keepsake Box
Keep out of direct sunlight
Minimize exposure to wide swings in humidity levels
Do not wash with water, if necessary use only a damp cloth
Wax lightly with a quality food safe wax or oil and buff to restore the luster. I like beeswax, walnut oil or mineral oil.
