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.

River Treasure Box

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

...the outside box is covered in a national geographic map of US rivers; dimension is added through a raised textured metallic gold river and blue and amber colored recycled rolled glass that look like lakes; a gold plated bangle serves as the handle that pulls the lid out; the lid is covered in gold, copper and rose colored leaf with blue glass in the shape of meandering river; 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

Dimensions 6 3/8"d x 6"w x 4 5/8"h
