I know, I know, this idea is not exactly brand new or super original, but I do like to do my own take on certain crafts. Besides, playing around with various materials relaxes me even if it is connected to actual work. I guess that's where I'm pretty lucky: I get to combine the things I love to do with the ones I'm getting paid for.
Anyway, a little while back I made these small bowls. Why? Well, because I can never have too many small trinket bowls to keep rings and earrings in. Makes sense, right? They are really easy to make and it turns out that (according to people who have seen them in my home) they look way more expensive than they are. The slightly rough feel combined with the lace pattern and dark colour is in my opinion the perfect combination and they look really nice with some delicate jewellery casually displayed in them. So, if you like the look as much as I do and I've convinced you to try these for yourself, then click here where you can find my tutorial.
