I had to figure a way to sell marble balls in a package that attracts the upper class market. I decided to make little cast balls with the marbles inside, but in a way that they could be visible on the outside. The cast balls looked like moons so it inspired me to make a concept of moon treasures, or moon gems, making the value of the marble balls special, as if it was a gift from space.

What’s Unique?
The feeling of the delicate treatment the package needs, makes the product feel special. The working with cast is not seen everyday in the market and also the mosquito net is sewed which makes it look delicate and handmade.
