Azure Vermillion Jewellery Box
“At LINLEY we are inspired by transforming an ethereal idea into a reality and we are fortunate enough to work with master craftsmen who turn the impossible into the possible. Everything we create at LINLEY is recognisable by those quintessentially British characteristics of inventiveness, meticulous attention to detail, creativity, elegance, wit and charm. We have always championed British craftsmanship and we are very proud of our artistry, both in terms of concept and implementation. It is our hope that the passion that drives the creative process is evident in everything we do.”Named after the Dragon God of the east, and of the essence of spring the Azure Jewellery Box features a scale-pattern inlay, with turquoise ash veneers. Opposing grain directions in the ash inlay give an illusion of flickering movement.The box has a hallmarked sterling silver escutcheon, a finely crafted walnut chamfer and is completed with a removable jewellery tray, lined with soft faux suede.
Michael Keech commented: “When this is all over” – It’s a mantra I’ve adopted rather assuredly, though the events unfolding offer no such certainty. Despite the enormity of what has transpired and though my world has altered (and shrunken) profoundly, I’m sustained by the conviction that we will return to better days. It’s an optimism that venerable organisations like the W.H.O. make possible. While they have laboured, and supported the pursuit of a solution, I have necessarily stood on the side-lines with no obvious way to contribute. I was therefore grateful for an opportunity to participate and delighted for LINLEY to support the cause.
