This is my jewellery box...

This was a birthday gift when I was living in London. It has a mirror on the inside of the lid and is lined with dark red velvet. I have always been a silver person as opposed to gold and so this was the perfect gift. As a result, most of my jewelry is also silver.

The subject for this weeks "This is..." was bought to you by Anastasia.
The "This is..." meme started by the very creative Angela of Three Buttons fame.

That is a really beautiful box and I believe the glass ball is a paperweight with a real dandelion head in it or a glass fabricaition?

A very serene image there. ;-)

What a gorgeous box. I love jewellery boxes that are lined with lush rich fabric - makes the treasures inside seem even more special :)

I also love your jewelery box! I too as you probably saw, am definitely a 'Silver' person too. So that makes your jewelery box even more appealing....beautiful photo too.

Thanks for all your lovely comments.

The glass ball is a dandelion suspended in glass. It is so beautiful and is one of my most precious treasures. I gave my Mum a larger one years ago and then decided it was so beautiful I got one for myself.
I have no idea how it is done, but I think that adds to the appeal.

A lovely jewellery box, but I love that lamp as well! I'm having a lovefest with lamps at the moment!

Lovely treasures. the box looks stunning...the velvet sounds very opulant.
