#096 Secret Hive
This little Secret Hive is made inside a gorgeous little antique wooden box. Originally used to house a set of draughts (checkers) pieces, the box is estimated to be from the 1920s. The wood is a lovely aged colour and is silky smooth to the touch. it has a loose fitting slide lid
Hiding inside I have created a 'Secret Hive' with handmade paper honeycomb and three little bees which I have stitched from felt, thread and wire. The 'honey' is made from dyed resin.
The box when closed, measures: 14cm x 6.25cm and is 4cm deep.
