Halloween Jewelry Box Completed!

Here it is all finished and listed on eBay!

The Jack O'Lantern on top is handmade out of paper clay and the leaves are polymer clay. I covered the drawer knobs with smaller polymer clay jols and leaves. The knob on the door is a gold clay star to match the stars on the panel that is also handmade out of polymer clay.

The box measures 10.5 inches wide and about 13 inches tall including the jol on top.

Here is a pic of the back so you can see where the light goes in and the polymer clay skeleton and crossbones wind up for the musical movement. When you open or close the bottom drawer it will start or stop the music. I replaced the old movement with a new one that plays Alfred Hitchcock's theme "Funeral March of a Marionette".

This is what the panel looks like when it is lit up. You can't tell in the pic, but I used a flicker light bulb. It really looks cool! The bulb will be included in the auction.

Also included is a handmade owl necklace. I used black, green and orange glass beads to go with the Halloween theme. The necklace measures 11 inches long from the clasp to the end of the owl pendant.

Halloween Jewelry Box WIP

Boy, I just noticed that I have not posted anything in awhile. Sorry about that. I have been busy working on a few new projects and thought I should go ahead and share one of them with you.

Isn't it beautiful?! Yah, right! Here is the before pic of a jewelry box that I found and am currently working on. Actually it didn't look this bad when I got it. I stripped all the hardware off and started sanding on it when I remembered I forgot to take a before pic. It will be, of course, a Halloween themed box hand painted in orange and black with some gold and green accents. I replaced the glass with a panel made out of polymer clay. I am also adding a light to the back that will light up the panel. I ripped out the old yucky fuzzy lining in the drawers and will reline them with a nice black corduroy material. This box also came with a wind up musical movement that I will be replacing with a new one. I would also like to make a piece of jewelry to go with it, I am still trying to decide. It is almost completed, I am just adding the finishing touches. I hope to have it ready to list in a few days. I should have some better pics for you then!!
