Whats In YOUR Treasure Chest?

I'm considering Treasure Chest charms today, after a sweet customer's request. Of COURSE we need a treasure chest, with all those pirate-themed charms I've got around!

The design process goes something like this:
Mmmmm, treasure chest!
Sketches, looking at images. Considering the basic shape.
Chest open or closed? Open would be awkward chest, wouldn't sit well on the wrist. A partially open chest, allowing a peep inside, would make it impossible to add jewels or to polish inside.

What about a closed treasure chest? It can be ornately decorated. The idea that the contents remain a mystery, becomes the new theme. We've moved beyond the pirate chest. A treasure chest can contain a wish, a poem, a secret love, a dream, the future, an amazing idea!

Stay tuned for the next episode of, "As the Treasure Chest Opens" (or stays SHUT).......
