The Path to Enlightenment

For millennia, reliquary boxes have been used to house sacred objects with deep personal meaning. Grace Gunning's modern interpretation of this ancient treasure box is a dynamic vessel for all of your most precious belongings.

She created her keepsake box for her daughters to encourage them to forge their own paths and to seek out "truth, beauty, strength, and love" at every turn. She utilizes hand-run 18th and 19th century machines to shape the heavy gauge copper into a lovely box. In the lid, she frames an elegant labyrinth, in which turquoise beads travel through the graceful curlicues, coming to rest at the center of each swirl. Lined in soft velvet, her heirloom container provides a timeless repository for stowing the bounty of treasures collected along your life's path. Handmade in Rhinecliff, New York.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.
