This is a mini mushroom shaped box made out of American Holly (Ilex opaca) with White Elephant Palm Nut (Kerriodoxa elegans) cap. I like to experiment with palm nuts, specially those with the beautiful pattern. These natural materials are hard and dense, often referred to as vegetable ivory due to the similarity in properties. Only here in my shop, you can find several species of these nuts transform into threaded caps: acorn cap, box cap, and mushroom cap. This mushroom was made from a rare species of palm with interesting polka dot pattern. I wish those nuts would grown a bit larger, but isn't this mini mushroom looks so fun?
This threaded box can be used to hold small valuables...The screw-on cap ensured that your content is secured; also serves as a unique gift for nature lovers
