For years my dad, Bernie Lindsey, has been a huge cheerleader for my jewelry and art business. Not only has he given me the good 'ol "Atta girl' but he has used his carpentry skills to make my table display stand out at vendor events. If you've ever attended one of my in person shows and you've noticed wooden multi-necklace stands, light wooden steps with grooves to hold earring cards, bracelet "trees" or even my business card holder... you've seen my dad's work!


This Hymn Rose Shadow Box project is special to me because it is the first time I can offer YOU the opportunity to appreciate my dad's artistry! This is truly a labor of love across the miles from Iowa to North Carolina to you!


The Shadow Box

Every side of each piece of wood is stained multiple times for consistent, rich color inside and outside the shadow box. Premium oak wood is stained a deep mahogany and varnished. Shadow box dimensions are 4.5x4.5 and 2.5 inches depth for the shatterproof clear plexiglass and hymn roses. All products are made by hand, due to nature of craftsmanship there may be variations in wood grain and stain color that occur within an order. These variations are part of what makes your order truly original. Pine wood may be offered as an option for wood style in the future. (Please indicate if you'd prefer that style.)


The Hymn Paper Roses

The color combination of the deep mahogany and cream of the hymns creates a distinguished look. Four hand quilled paper flowers are adhered to a piece of cardstock which may be removed from the shadow box. The rolled roses are each made from genuine hymns made from a oversized, large font discarded hymn book.
