This is gorgeous! Did you bake the clay and then glue it on? did the box get bakes with the clay? I love the swirling pattern, and the little bits of silver. well done!

Thank you so much! :) She was one of my very first boxes and that design is still one of my favorites.

I first made a thin tile cut to fit in the box lid & baked that. Then I created the design on the tile & baked again and glued the tile into the lid.

I never baked the boxes because I was afraid the wood might weep sap from the heat, but it would have been easier to have done the tile directly on the box and baked the whole thing!
