Lovely box isn't it?  The box is made entirely with only thick string or cord, wooden dowels and glue !  The filigree style gives it a very ornate look. Imagine if you used soutache cord!

Watch the artisan make it with the help of a diagram placed inside a plastic sheet protector.  This allows her to remove each panel after construction. Curving the panels is done by heating and pressing them around a water bottle mandrel.

The tutorial is in Russian so turn off the sound unless you understand the language.

I first spotted this on Bored Panda's Facebook Page.  Whoever shared it inexplicably called it a jewelry box!!  That led to a number of comments about small jewelry falling out through the holes!! The box could be made such that the panels are less holey if it were to be a jewelry box. Or store jewelry in separate little zip locks inside the box.

I rather like the use of the crystals to embellish the box. But some of the Bored Panda followers thought those were tacky.  What do you think?   Please share your comments!
