We walked into the Treasure Box and I immediately spotted my next piece of jewelry. It is a beautiful green sea glass wrapped in sterling silver wire. I purchased matching earrings also. All hand made by local artists. Great way to support the locals

the treasure box was such a unique experience. First and foremost is owned by a Wonderful Woman. Her pieces are gorgeous. She'll even make custom pieces or adjust the ones she has just to make it perfect for you.
