Hannah writes, "Hi! I have been searching for the perfect jewelry box for the past year and have not found anything that I love. I'm partially to blame because I'm so picky but I just don't want to spend so much on something that I don't love. I'm looking for something well-made and unique but still nice to look at. I found a beautiful wooden jewelry box on the Barneys website, but I just can't justify the $350 purchase. I also love the styles at Anthropologie that are fun and beautifully made, but am really looking for some other options. Please help!"
Hey Hannah, MP here, I'm totally loving the Barney's box, but I'm with you - the price is no go! Hope you dig one of the boxes I've found - may I also suggest a lovely vintage Pyrography box, easily found on eBay or Etsy. I use it for my jewelery, knick-knack storage and love the Nouveau look of them. And just for kicks, check out this piece of art/ amazing box from Theo Kamecke, entitled Zoroaster, made from circuitry.
