 I love to design packaging.  This is for my photo necklaces, which I make by hand.  The little photographs are mounted permanently to birchwood.  When I started to think about packaging, I liked the idea that they were mounted to wood and how to make that fact come across in the packaging without having to use a bunch of words to describe it, hence the photograph of the wood stack cross-section as the background.  With the topper, again I didn't want a lot of words for customers to read.  I went with a yellow-green like that of a leaf on a tree, and rounded the corners to give it a more organic feel.  They are easy to assemble and will keep the necklaces clean when on display at artshows or brick and mortar shops.
