Sea Poetry Box

Can you imagine if we could keep our dreams and our good feelings inside a small box, which we could open whenever we wanted or needed? That’s exactly what the poetry boxes do.

This one in particular has handmade watercolours illustrations and a small oyster made of felt inside with a plastic bead pretending to be a pearl. The green ribbons pretend to be algae and the seashells are real.

The sequins symbolize the sun shining on the sea and the glitter the sand.

Inside there is a quote in Portuguese saying ‘O meu coração cheira a espuma do mar, é feito de conchas, areia e corais e tem os maiores tesouros guardados lá dentro’ (My heart smells of sea foam, is made of seashells, sand and corals and it has the biggest treasures hidden inside).

Dimensions: about 12cmsx9cms

Weight: about 200gr

Materials: wooden box, watercolour paper, watercolours, acrylic ink, sequins, felt, ribbon, plastic bead, seashells, glitter, Mod Podge.
