The Story Behind the Boob


by Gill Hutchison April 30, 2018

The original boob jewel box was created in 2015, just before Mother's Day, as a present for Chela's Mum.

Chela was making other closed form jewellery boxes, and as she finished a jewellery box, would carve the lid off. One day when she was closing the form on the wheel she looked down and noticed it had created a nipple shape.

Chela thought her mum would get a kick out of the boob form so glazed the top pink like a nipple. The intention was to give it as a Mother's Day present with a card saying 'thanks for all the milk, Mum', but after posting it on instagram someone wanted to buy it, so mum missed out. 

This year Chela has created a special edition boob jewel box with an added bit of sparkle, just for her Mum.
