DIY Gemstone Topped Jewelry Box craft

I was beyond thrilled to be invited back to Oregon’s KATU Afternoon Live show last month – to demonstrate how to make these beautiful DIY gemstone-topped jewelry boxes (for Valentine’s Day…or any other gift-giving occasion really!)

Watch below as I demonstrate with host Tra-Renee how to make your own to rival those $45+ boxes you see at the home decor stores!

How to DIY Your Own Gemstone- (or Agate, or Geode) Topped Jewelry Box

DIY Supplies for Making Your Own Agate Jewelry Box That I Mentioned in the Video:

Boxes: unfinished wooden boxes found at Michael’s. You could also buy them online here.
Paint for Inside and Outside of Boxes: I used Martha Stewart Crafts line of acrylic paints
Sliced Agate: Ed’s House of Gems (store on Sandy Blvd. in NE Portland, OR to buy lovely rocks and sliced agate pieces) // Amazon.com
Silver Titanium Heart Crystal: (I mistakenly called it “hematite” in the video, oops) Etsy.com (search results for heart crystal since the exact one I featured is no longer available)
Gold Calligraphy Pen: this is the type I used for painting the raw edges of the boxes; it creates a lovely metallic finish
2-Part Epoxy: you can use any kind as long as it’s clear, I used this one and it’s never EVER coming off that box!
Mod Podge Dimensional Magic (for a glossy, resin-like finish): Michael’s, Jo-Ann Crafts, or online here
Happy DIY’ing!
