Busy Busy

June is like a crazy kind of month for me in more ways than one, we have 6 family birthdays then it finishes off with my own which collides with our vacation this year to cap things off our car was hit by another vehicle two weeks ago while parked outside our home and although it should have been a simple process of getting our car fixed it was no simple process at all but hopefully we should have it back pretty soon.
In the mean time i have completed another Ivory casket.


                            This one measures 32mm in width x 22mm in depth and 22mm in height.


       Inside is a tiny 14th Century book of hours that measures 20mm x 15mm and has 35 coloured pages.


The tiny draw on the side opens to reveal a small collection of ancient bronze coins still in the condition         that they were unearthed from the ground, a perfect little treasure box.

Ive also been busy on my own build fitting the ground floor plus a few other bits and bobs, i'll do a post on this either midweek or once i return from my holiday, i'll see how time goes.
In the mean time have a great week everyone. Tony.
