A Thai silk box in a beautiful shade of olive green. I've embellished it with 'leafy' swatches of 20-year old lightly corded European lace. AB swarovski crystals in striking orange and red have been hand-stitched on to represent the cactii flowers on the top swatch of lace which looks like a cactus. 'Early morning dewdrops' in pale swarovski crystals have been added to give that feeling of the crisp morning air. Two-toned green/black teeny weeny seed beads trail down the 'stem'. Notice how the leaf 'wraps over' the side of the box for a complete look.

Size of box - SMALL: 3-1/2 in. square
Height with cover on - 1-3/4 in.
Depth of box only - just over 1-1/2 in.
No compartments inside the box.
