This sculpted wood jewelry box named The Scallop Box, was inspired by a sunset walk along a pacific coast beach in Panama. The three dimensional lid represents many of the shells I found during the walk.

The shape of the scallop is known as ‘pecten’, a Latin word for comb. Pliny, a Roman philosopher, gave scallops the name because their round outline with ribs radiating outwards reminded him of a style of comb popularly used during the Roman Empire.

Each piece is painstakingly finished, hand polished, and individually signed. They are lined with genuine Ultrasuede and feature abalone/paua shell for the inlay. This box is a perfect size for watches, necklaces, bracelets, small desk accessories, etc.

Dimensions: 8″ (20.3cm) x 4″ (10.2cm) x 1.5″ (3.8cm)

Woods: See the last two photos above for the selection.
