Handmade Boxes for Caterpillar Stitched Books with Amulets


For the past four weeks I have been working on six boxes to house mini caterpillar stitched books.  Each box has a porcupine quill from which hang several amulets.  I am quite proud of how this project turned out.  It certainly was an enjoyable experience to design and create each box.  I have had the porcupine quills for a long time.  I was not sure how I would use them and voila here is what happened.

Wow! I just love what you created! Each one is so rich and yummy!
I enlarged to get a closer view, and love them, John.

Oh, john
This compound of “buildings” has a lot of power for the smallness of their scale.
Most excellent work; inviting yet, formidable.
I think it needs a miniature librarian in uniform.
