MJ's handcrafted, hexagon-shaped Twig etui has been designed as a beautiful, yet also moody, place to hold favored hand-sewing needles and pins, but would just as easily display a collection of treasured brooches. 

The Twig Petite Hexagon Etui measures about 3 1/4" tall and is about 3" wide.  The hidden construction elements are cardboard, wool batting and wool felt.  The exterior is covered in Twig and Aged Bark hand-dyed silk matelassés and velvet.  The interior is comprised of Cedar Rose silk velvet needle panels and a Bronzed Olive silk velvet pincushion.  The half-circle ribbonwork accents on the etui exterior are comprised of Twig and Aged Bark silk ribbon.  Tiny pearls accent the lid's scalloped edge while beadwork and MJ trademark fluting grace the top of the lid.  At the lid center is a velvet-covered magnet.  The lid can also be used as a tray.  

This is a one-of-a-kind piece, signed and dated by Mary Jo. The construction and finishing used to create this etui is of couture quality.

Etui: From the 17th century French verb estuier, to hold, and its nominal derivative estui, a holder/container, an étui is a small, decorative case that was used to hold and carry sewing items, sealing wax or toilet articles.  The etui was designed to be a portable fashion accessory, a kind of predecessor to the handbag.
