Modern Jewelry Box Design

I am obsessed with details. Details of historical events, classic works of literature, the development of art movements and how each of these influence the human experience and each other throughout time.

That's why I love jewelry boxes. Their beauty and charm are found in the details. They are personal, intimate items that hold the story of their owners and make the most wonderful and unexpected gift that a loved one will value for a lifetime.

A jewelry box is special because it often becomes a cherished family heirloom. My grandmother's jewelry box sits on my bedside table and I will pass it onto my daughter when she's older.


MODERN DESIGN
My style is heavily influenced by Art Nouveau, Art Deco, the designs of Frank Lloyd Wright, and the geometric patterns of Islamic Art. I love to use jewelry boxes as a canvas to portray an isolated facet of the human experience. That may be a memory, experience, or feeling. Examples include "Moonlit Garden" and "Frosty Window".


MATERIALS AND PROCESS
I search out vintage pieces with good lines. Most modern jewelry boxes are made of partical board and cheap handles. Vintage boxes were often made with solid wood and heavy-duty metal hardware.

I use high quality paints, fabrics, waxes, and other materials to re-imagine, nourish, and protect each jewelry box. I paint them by hand and use a variety of techniques to achieve the desired end design. The process takes several days from beginning to end and requires an eye for detail.



FOR MEN AND WOMEN
Jewelry boxes are not only for women. Gentemen's Boxes are the male equivalent. Men also need an organized place to put personal items and nic nacks at the end of the day. For corporate men, a good Gentemen's Box is a must. Ring holders organize their cuff links and jacket pins instead of sliding around in the top nightstand drawer. I design many jewelry boxes that have a more masculine design and would be suitable for a man or woman.

HOW TO CHOOSE
Everyone, regardless of age and gender, needs a jewelry box. They are the perfect size to place on a nightstand or dresser for tossing daily use items into. They are great for preparing the accessories you will wear with your outfits for the week. And of course, they are the perfect size for those with smaller jewelry collections. A jewelry box placed in an accessible place will always be functional.

Jewelry armoires are larger and meant to hold an entire collection. They are generally too large to be placed on a nightstand and may require a dresser or island / sturdy shelf in a walk-in-closet. Gentlemen jewelry armoires are extremely difficult to find as they require deeper drawers, so these are not always available in my shop.

CUSTOM ORDERS
I accept custom orders based on previous designs that are sold out. You can find them in the highlights at the top of my Instagram page.

ADD ON SERVICE - SELECT A TUNE
You can make your jewelry box extra special and meaningful by choosing a specific tune. Simply choose the "Select a Tune" option at checkout and message me with your song of choice within 24 hours. See listing photos for a list of tunes to choose from.

ALLERGY AND HEALTH INFORMATION
All pieces are thoroughly cleaned before and after painting. I use non-toxic, low-VOC products. My work and living space is completely smoke and pet free.

PROCESSING
Most boxes take a week to process. Processing times for custom orders and the "Select a Tune" service vary.
Express processing is available on a case-by-case basis for a $15 fee.

PACKING
Each piece is labeled with a large tag which details all known information about the jewelry box including history, any flaws, and design process. You will also receive a care card with instructions on upkeep and non-toxic, low-VOC products that will help you maintain the condition of your piece for the duration of its lifetime. I try to do my part for the environment by recycling and using biodegradable packaging materials whenever possible.

SHIPPING
I ship nationwide within the US and internationally.

I use USPS, UPS, and FedEx depending on current rates. I do not make any money from shipping. Shipping prices reflect the current most cost effective rate for regular shipping. If I receive a cheaper rate, I will refund the difference to you.

I purchase insurance coverage for every piece that is shipped to ensure that you are protected against loss or damage.

Frequently asked questions
Factory Made VS Artisan Made

Factory made jewelry boxes are created with one factor in mind: mass profit. This is the deciding factor for design, materials, and construction. When they get old they end up in the landfill.

Artisan made jewelry boxes are created with a vision. Quality materials and many hours of skill go into to bringing that vision to life. When you purchase an artisan made jewelry box, you are getting a unique piece and you are supporting a small business at the same time.

Returns

My pieces are created with high quality materials and are thoroughly inspected before being offered for purchase. Etsy takes a percentage of sales which is not refunded, and shipping two ways costs the customer a near equal amount to the box itself. For these reasons I have a no return policy.

I insure all packages that are shipped out. Please contact me at prettylittleboxestx@gmail.com within 7 days if your box was damaged in transit.

Vintage Jewelry Boxes

I use vintage jewelry boxes whenever possible as they are made of better quality materials than modern ones. I choose pieces that do not contain damage that would effect the functionality or aesthetic of the final design. They may still have what some may consider as flaws, and others as character. I am happy to provide close up pictures before purchasing.
