Spooky Jewelry Box that I Made and Sold to Jen Lightfoot

Have you guessed yet that Halloween is my favorite holiday? I am absolutely in love with this handmade spooky Halloween-themed box by Carlie Sorat! The attention to detail is insane with the unique silver spiderweb pendants, intricate overlapping of images and text, and the steampunk-style latch key.

I’m currently using this spooky box as a home for some of my jewelry, but it can be used to hold a number of different items (I almost used it to store art supplies!). Carlie’s gorgeous boxes are one-of-a-kind and each one is individually handmade. The colors are vibrant and I love the retro, occult, and vintage Halloween-vibe of this box.

I have a lot of necklaces so I’m always looking for practical (yet stylish!) ways to store them. I don’t really wear bracelets or rings very much and I don’t have pierced ears so no earrings for me, but I love necklaces — especially big statement necklaces. They get tangled easily though so I have multiple jewelry boxes. This one is great for those really large necklaces that don’t fit in my other jewelry boxes.

Halloween is my all-time favorite holiday! I was actually super scared of a lot of the costumes when I was a little kid — I even made my cousin take off part of his makeup at the dinner table. He had a realistic bleeding gash on his cheek and it grossed me out so much lol. As I got older though, especially in my early teens, I really started to love the idea of dressing up and watching scary movies on Halloween. There’s something about Halloween’s dark and creepy yet sometimes whimsical imagery that I’m really drawn to.

Of course I wanted a horror-themed box, but Carlie can make boxes with a ton of different themes! She is always taking commissions, and she is super sweet! For your own custom handmade box, contact Carlie at chaas66@aol.com
