Welcome to Peter Lloyd's website. Wooden boxes ~ Jewellery Boxes ~ Ring boxes ~ Desk boxes

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.

On the subject of proposals I've had two brilliant photos sent recently of proposals featuring my ring boxes - one on the top of a mountain in the alps and the other in a castle in Ireland.- They both said yes...

As for other news - if anybody would like to rent a large house in beautiful rural Cumbria for a year - do get in touch. We're planning a cycle ride to China leaving here in January 2017 - Hadrian's Wall in Cumbria to the Great wall of China so we're calling it the 'Wall to Wall'.

If you're hesitating over whether to buy that heirloom box now or put it off til next year - I would advise sooner rather than later...
