“A mermaid found a swimming lad,
Picked him for her own,
Pressed her body to his body,
Laughed; and plunging down
Forgot in cruel happiness
That even lovers drown.” ~ William Butler Yeats

This altered treasure or jewelry book box is perfect for all your small treasures. I have started with a very high quality 'secret book box' sized at 5.5" x 7.5" x 2.25" high. It looks like a leather, hardbound book at first glance, but has a lid that opens up to reveal a secret compartment for your treasures. The inside is lined with lush black fabric, and the box itself is heavy weight and wonderfully crafted. I've altered and embellished the top of the box with a beautiful vintage inspired collage print made with a beautiful mermaid by Waterhouse. The word 'Imagine' in a fancy script lies beneath a patina aged gilded frame, and a pretty metal seahorse and ship wheel add to the nautical flair.

This will ship safely wrapped in bubbles to keep it safe in transit.
