Spring Bluebird & Hydrangea Jewelry Box

I recently completed a special custom order for a lady who is a hug bluebird fan. I decided on this jewelry box to pair some colorful, blooming Hydrangeas with a bluebird perched on top.


I had the flowers spill over to the front and sides of the box just a bit as I like to carry the design around to all the sides as much as possible.


I also like putting a special surprise on the inside of each of my jewelry box lids. It is nice to have something to look at when you open the box as well.
Although this was a custom order, other boxes can be found on my ETSY site:
