Reliquary Boxes have an ancient mystical quality with a modern edge. The rich feel of copper gives a warmth either in your hand or in any décor. Copper has been in use since 9000 BC as jewelry and Cleopatra used copper as mirrors. The goddess Venus is linked to copper. It is in our blood (women tend to have a bit more than men). Mystics feel copper connects energy of the spirit and we know scientifically it conducts electricity and heat better than any metal. It is a very special metal, part of us and our lives, and a pleasure to work with. Allow us to make you a heirloom Reliquary Box for your 7th wedding anniversary as it’s traditional gift is copper.
All the boxes have an interactive quality in a wide range of sizes. The smallest, the Toy boxes, have charms floating in a window of tiny glass balls that move as the box is moved. Perfect for a ring box or small treasures. Be sure to check the Changeling Boxes, our most unique Reliquary Box. Before your very eyes the pictures change ~ Magic! The Gizmo Series have a ball rolling around spirals. The Alchemy and Medium and Large Boxes all have a mesmerizing feel as tiny glass balls roll over the varied images often over mother of pearl and gold leaf.
These boxes are made to order, one at a time on old machines from the 1800’s and early 1900’s.
