Put Your Heart Into It

Throughout our lives, we gather trinkets and treasures from the most cherished moments and people in them. Give these mementos a venerable spot in your home in this beautifully handcrafted box from California artist Cynthia Webb. Her tree of life medallion adorns the top, celebrating the power of love and unity with symbolic twists of budding branches stretch and intertwine in gorgeous harmony inside its rounded trim—a beautiful representation of the sacred union of marriage and the family it creates.

"Some things, when together, are more complete than when standing alone," says Webb.

Inspired by faith and family, Webb hand-carved this intricate family tree motif in jeweler's wax to set the mold from which this pewter token is cast. The finishing touch calls for polishing, oxidizing and a swiping a veneer of lacquer over its delicate, handmade finish. Handmade in California.

Made in California

Cynthia Webb is a San Diego, California artist who specializes in the design of handcrafted pewter gifts. Her work is known for its fine detail, which is evident on both the front and the back of her pieces. Her designs range from simple hearts to complex angels and crosses.

Beginning with an idea, Cynthia sketches until she is satisfied that she has captured her original thought on paper. She carves the design in jeweler's wax, signs and titles the piece on the back in the original wax. The wax is then cast and a mold is made, which allows duplicate pieces to be created. After the pewter is cast, the pieces are hand-finished, oxidized and polished. A thin lacquer coating is applied to prevent further oxidation.

Cynthia's most popular designs capture her earliest and most enduring inspirations--home, family, faith and nature. The early influence of a creative family and the inspiration of world travel guided her to a career in the arts. Her introduction to jewelry making began in London, where she lived briefly prior to commencing studies in architecture at the University of Houston. Her work is all hand crafted in the USA.

"I'm inspired through the creation of 'Art that tugs on one's heart strings.' I hope to remind each of us of that special occasion, person or place we connect with in our past or present lives."

Cynthia feels strongly that her gifts and success are to be shared and she gladly supports several non-profit organizations by way of donations from the sale of specific items. These include charities tied to seniors in need, cancer awareness and children with autism.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Tree of Life Keepsake Box:

    Gave this to my wife for our 5-year wedding anniversary (wood). The size is nice for a pair of earrings or other piece of jewelry. I presented it with a little love note inside. The craftsmanship is flawless, and my wife really loved the tree of life medallion on top. Overall, an attractive and useful little box.
