Svasara Treasure Chests & Boxes

Created with the belief that everyone should have a beautiful, unique and special place to keep the things they treasure...something visible and alive, becoming part of your story. Each is always unique & handmade with an element reminding us that we are all connected and part of something bigger. For example, the treasure boxes are all the same on the inside - just as we are all very different on the outside but consist of the same elements within.

Butterfly's Flight Treasure Box

A wooden cigar box from Honduras transformed into a treasure box...

...the outside has a meandering textured gold pattern---reminiscent of a butterfly's flight; gold bells are used for the handle that will pull the lid out; the lid is encrusted with turquoise & golden shades of colored recycled rolled glass; inside is painted in a metallic blue and the bottom is lined with hand embossed copper, recycled blue glass and petals from flowers much cherished.
(note: Each one is different on the outside but all the insides are the same, like all of us)

depending on how you look inside and where the light comes & reflects from the bottom inside will glow more or less and change in color
