These keepsake boxes are hand-painted, and in many cases hand-crafted from reclaimed wood with new and hand-crafted finishings.
The history of keepsake boxes goes back in Scotland to the late 15th century, when the sharing of small, decorated boxes became a ‘love promise’ or token of affection, between courting sweethearts. The idea of keeping precious items in specially decorated containers is as hold as the oldest residents of Scotland; archaeological evidence of clay, carved bone and wood, reed woven and leather boxes goes back over 10,000 years.
I keep this tradition alive with keepsake boxes made from reclaimed wood, re-used paper and metal, decorated with traditional images, symbols, florae, faunae and patterns, keeping this ancient pagan tradition alive today.
