Did you guys know that one of the originators of glass boxes was Brenda Griffith way back around 2004? Gorgeous boxes!! She is very inspiring to me (and to others) and after reading her book she has personally encouraged me to take her box style to the next level. Be sure to check out her book on Amazon "Kiln-Formed Glass-Beyond The Basics". Great book! So much information about techniques!!
The cool thing about making our “Treasure Troves” is they will have YOUR style.
We are using a different method from Brenda’s that is much easier! You are going to love it!! No one else is doing it our way!!!!

Can you ship overseas? Yes....we ship all over the world and if you send us your shipping info we will send back a quote.
