A Little Something Special

This precious ceramic box is an artful way to hold tiny treasures. Artist JoAnn Stratakos crafts each detail by hand in her Pennsylvania studio, from the swirling, embossed surfaces to the cheery daisy accent. Inside, a mottled, steel blue glaze provides a secret cache of contrasting color. This little gem can be not only the perfect place for someone to hide away a special ring or favorite pair of earrings, but also an unforgettable and lasting way to box up a thoughtful gift. Handmade in Effort, Pennsylvania.

Much thought and years of experience go into each piece of pottery by JoAnn Stratakos. All pieces are original designs created and produced exclusively by the artist in her studio in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. They are made of stoneware clay, which has splendid serviceability and resists chipping. Each piece is hand-dipped in glazes that JoAnn has formulated. Hand-dipping requires more time than spraying, but gives each piece subtle variations and its unique character. The color and shapes are designed to compliment, not compete, with your decor and the foods being served. collection

We love the craftsmanship and detail in JoAnn Statakos' stoneware boxes. They're perfect for rings, earrings, and other tiny keepsakes. What would you stash in this artful handmade piece?

It so nice to see things made in the USA. Keep up the good work.

Cute and made in the USA. Yeah!

Beautiful, but not a really useful design for a functional jewelry box. Too much work and artistry for a tiny box.

Vote: Thumbs down!

cute but too dark, and too rough to hold - also, the top might fall off if you're in a hurry

Loves me or loves me not? I think if you are getting a sweet little gift in this box it's pretty apparent!!! That's even BEFORE you find out it's handcrafted by an artist right here in the USA!!!


I think this is sweet.

I only gave this a thumbs up because it would be cute to use as a special gift box, or just a decorative item. Other than that it isn't large enough to be a practical jewelry box.

Cute for a little birthday present

I love it. I think its adorable with charm and is a cute place to put little things that you may not wear/use everyday.

Not that unique

Looks like something I made in college.

Life is a school of hard knocks. The artist is probably a charming, likable woman, but if this is an example of what you would get, I wouldn't buy it. It's not uncommon; it's too common. Just doesn't cut the grade.
