Frances Stoia Large Carousel Bone Box
Like most modern women, I like having a lot of jewels. I especially like rings and I try matching them with the clothes I wear, so I wear a different ring with a different colour stone every day. But the most annoying thing is that these rings are small items and I need something to store them safely. Of course, a jewel box is just what i need, so I was looking for an interesting one when I found this Frances Stoia Large Carousel Bone Box . It is beautiful and perfect for my rings and beads.
Frances Stoia designed a beautiful box made of bone, just like our ancestors who used all the parts of an animal for something. He polished the bone parts carefully and glued them together so as to obtain a nice and round box, with a matching lid. The name of the box makes you wonder and then, when you look at the item more carefully, you do realize the whole box looks like a carousel, the kind that has wooden horses the kids love to ride and spin on music. It is a merry-go-round, a stilized carousel made of bone. It requires skilled handicraft and can be purchased for $79 from Sue Fisher King.
