Illusion Eye Ring Boxes
While designing cover motifs for these little book ring boxes (outside the realm of my usual patterns), has for me, been relatively unchartered territory, when @keltypelechytikjewellery asked me if we could create a ring box with an eye design on the cover, needless to say I was very excited.
In an attempt to capture some of the secrecy and intimacy surrounding the exchange of a special piece adorned with a Lover's Eye portrait, and in a nod to the incredible work of Kelty and wonderfully talented artist Robyn Richchrist, the gold foiled, Deep Chocolate leather cover of the book features a framed eye composed entirely of dots, that seems to fade and reappear in the changing light.
The interior of the boxes features a ring pouch within the inner cover in either Olive or Terracotta velvet, and the back of the box is lined with a truly beautiful, dainty floral cotton lawn hand selected from Liberty London (which is just as delicious to work with as it is to look at.)
It's been a privilege to work on this project, and a collaboration that's left me feeling inspired and very lucky to have the opportunity to make boxes to house such beautiful pieces.
