I may also use it for beads that I haven’t strung up yet – though since I have new glass beads to identify, this box may now be too small!

More woodburned boxes
In my previous post, I mentioned that I took a pyrography class at Borealis Yule, and then was further inspired to try to give the craft a few more goes.

In my previous post I showed off some boxes with designs with dragons or serpents with naalbinding needles, and in this post I’ll show off some of the other designs I did as well. Continue reading
