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.
Well, summer has arrived in true Cumbrian style - with rain and temperatures more like winter! We did have a short blast of summer though earlier in the year - a mini heat wave in spring... strange times!
Speaking of strage times, I'm very tempted to comment on the political situation too but apart from the fact that I remain a-political on this page, anything I did say would be out of date by the next day!
So, I shall stick to what I know best - boxes. I'm slowing down a little on the making ( I shall be away a fair bit during July and early August) but there is still a good selection of jewellery and desk boxes to choose from. Peter
