Keepsake Boxes

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.
