A trinket box, turned from a branch of yew on my lathe.
The yew tree has been used in Celtic folklore for centuries, and is a beautiful timber, classed as a softwood, but harder than some of the more common hardwoods.
The box itself is embellished on the outside and then given a coat of wax and buffed to a lovely tactile finish.
Height- 80mm.
Dia- 64mm.

The goblet arrived in good time, and I am absolutely delighted with it, beautifully designed , love the design and the two rings on the stem.
I have bought this goblet as a gift for a pagan hand fasting ceremony.
the ceremony has not been held yet, but I am sure they will love it as much as I do . thank you
