Spotlight on - bog oak and sycamore jewellery box

Today is the first public day of Handmade at Kew 2018, and this is the first “Spotlight” blog post about one of the boxes I have on my stand.


Today - bog oak and sycamore jewellery box.


Made from ripple sycamore (the white colour timber) and wrapped in bog oak, this jewellery box has an eastern feel to it.


Inside here are three removable trays for jewellery storage.


The box and trays are lined with faux suede.


And what is bog oak? Basically it is oak that has been lying in a peat bog for a long time. And I do mean a long time. The oak on this box has been radio carbon dated to about 4500 years old!
