I think it’s been established that I’m a total sucker for original art, and I’m even more inspired by artisans who are able to create pieces that are both elegant and whimsical. Meet my newest obsession, Specimen Box Shop, and its owner, Gabriele Cavender. Keep reading to learn more about this shop. Using handcrafted shadow boxes and unique (often vintage) frames, beautiful specimens are showcased and turned into one-of-a- kind works of art. They are quirky and hauntingly pretty and would make any vignette infinitely more special. Throw one up beside a vintage bust and perhaps a more modern sculptural objet and, congratulations my friends, you’ve just managed to create an absolutely magical design moment.
