Treasure Chest

Boston based jewelry designer Amy J. creates completely unique and one-of-a-kind jewelry designs using found treasures such as beach glass and subway tokens from cities across the U.S. I love the frosty effect of beach glass after being tumbled in the sand and waves, so I am especially drawn to her pieces that feature naturally shaped beach glass set in sterling silver. Ranging from simple pendants and rings featuring a single beachglass bezel to more elaborate pieces such as this gorgeous bracelet comprised of individually bezel-set beachglass "gems" that are linked together, all of her pieces have a beautiful glowy depth to them. I am also loving this transmetropolitan bracelet that features tokens from different cities. Have some old foreign coins or tokens from your travels abroad? Amy will work with you to create your own personalized piece of jewelry. See more of her collection at
