Peter Lloyd, working from his small workshop in Cumbria UK, searches out unusual and beautiful English hardwoods to create jewellery boxes, ring boxes, work boxes, writing slopes.
Whether it be a desk box made from tiger oak, a jewelry chest, a little jewel of a ring box or stationery box of burr elm, each of these handmade wooden boxes is a celebration of its wood.
The curlews are back! The hills are once again filled with their haunting cries, so spring is on its way!
I've added a new box to the jewellery box page, the desk box page and the little boxes page - I couldn't make up my mind where it belonged...
I've decided to offer a brand new service.
Last week, as has happened so many times in the past, I had a call from a customer who was finding it very hard to decide between one box and another. He wanted a jewellery box for a special present and had narrowed the choice down but couldn't get to the final one. Eventually he jumped in his car and drove the 130 miles here so as he could see all of the boxes 'in the flesh'.
So, I've decided to offer a 'see the boxes in your own office or home' service. (I really need to come up with a more snappy name...)
I don't know why I didn't think of this before. As of now you can summon my boxes to you! If you'd like to know more, please go to the 'about the boxes' page.
As ever, there's more news from a different perspective on the diary page - or at least there will be if Chris gets around to doing it! Peter
