Custom Jewelry Box;
A Personal Gift that 
Will Be Treasured Forever

Finding unique gift ideas can be a challenge; but a handmade wooden custom jewelry box or decorative storage box might be the exact treasure you are looking for.  

I make my handcrafted boxes out of exotic woods from around the world.  Since no two pieces of wood are ever the same, each box is truly one-of-a-kind.  And since you get to choose the woods for your box, plus approve the box before I send it, you will know you are getting a truly personalized gift for your loved one.

Here are the most common types of wood
that I work with:

  Top: Black Walnut

  Second: Curly Maple

  Third: Cherry

  Bottom: Bubinga

These are the woods that I almost always use for the main body; then drawers or top accent pieces are made of burl, quilted maple, or other types of patterned wood.

Custom Jewelry Box
with Engraved Plate

Additionally, I can make your box even more personalized by including an engraved plate (for a small additional fee) and place it where appropriate on or in the box.  Here is an example of a personalized plate that I included with my "Wedge" box as a gift for a wedding:

Of course, to create a truly unique custom jewelry box design is not always possible; but please contact me via the form at the bottom of this page to discuss what you have in mind.  I am always open to new possibilities and will do my best to work with you to create your perfect jewelry box.  Please know that for truly custom work, a 50% deposit is required up-front.

Custom Storage Boxes

Additionally, I also do custom work if my schedule allows.  I have created custom storage boxes for silver, custom boxes for expensive pens, and many other projects.  

Here are a few photos of a custom box I created to hold collectable knives:

Of course, custom work is dependent on your needs and my schedule; and again for truly custom work I do require a 50% deposit up-front.  However, I enjoy creating unique pieces and am always happy to work with you to create exactly what you need.

A gift created by an artist not only helps our economy, but seems to say, "I chose this just for you."  It's difficult to convey that personalized message when you buy something mass produced from a factory in China!

Whether you want to customize your purchase simply by choosing the woods, adding a personalized engraved plate, or creating a new design from scratch, I look forward to creating the piece that you have in mind.  I look forward to hearing from you!

I purchased one of your Bubinga and Maple boxes about 4 years ago and still think it's as beautiful as the day I bought it. The craftsmanship is superb and leaves nothing to be desired. My wife loves the flexibility of it and everyone who sees it thinks it is simply stunning. Thanks so much for such a wonderful product.

Thank you, Steve, for the beautiful jewelry box. It is gorgeous and I know that my daughter will love it. We hope it will be an heirloom piece for her to remember her graduation day from med school. Hopefully we will do business again in two years when my other daughter finishes her grad degree. Sincerely yours,

~ Georgia

Just to let you know that my jewelry box arrived and it is stunning, I really love it! I looked at hundreds of them including store-bought (and probably Chinese-made), Amish/Shaker, and other hand-mades, and yours were the most beautiful (and the most versatile, as none of the others had adjustible drawer dividers). Thanks for the beautiful jewelry box, and I'm glad my holiday purchase was Made in the USA.

Hi Steve, I just wanted to tell you that I have been having so much fun with my beautiful box, putting everything in one place (at last) and standing in front of it with the doors and a drawer open, admiring both the box and my lovely pieces. It sits in a place of honour in my bedroom; and has been much admired by my friends. Keep up the good work!

Kind regards,

~ Pam
