ring box

Materials: Purple Heart wood, black felt, stainless steel, and neodymium magnets

This ring box was used in a traditional Orthodox Christian wedding as the vessel in which the rings are transported down the aisle to the alter. Upon arrival, the priest opens the box, unfolding it into the shape of a crucifix.

The felt wraps the outside of the box and serves as the hinges. Tiny neodymium magnets keep the box closed when folded together.
