Bejeweled box - front by XofHope Bejeweled box - front by XofHope
Inspired by :icondiarment:'s amazing work.

Don't be fooled, this is neither old nor metallic! The metal parts (except for the lock and hinges) are all just painted cardboard!

Believe it or not, this took me almost two full working days to finish and that's not even counting the drying times. But I had lots of fun doing it and hope to do some more in this style.

Available here.

That is such a cool design! The colors are very pretty! You did a wonderful job with the textures. It really looks like metal. :rose:

Thank you! I'm usually very self-critic but, for once, I'm actually pleased with the way it turned out.

This is lovely. I like how the groves in the wood create bighter lines with this lighting, and the aged look of the "metal" parts, and the shades of blue you picked for the stones.

Kinda makes me think "Atlantis", something at the same time ancient and futuristic.

Thank you, I'm glad people are liking it.
I like the idea of it coming from Atlantis, I agree it fits well.
