Jesseca McCloskey's line of Paper Treasure jewelry was born in 2006, shortly after her move to Portland from her home state of Rhode Island. Jesseca has always been a maker of things but it wasn't until she was given a big, inspiring treasure chest filled with broken bits of vintage costume jewelry that she realized her passion was in jewelry.
Paper Treasure jewelry is carefully created using re-claimed bits of the past: vintage and antique beads, charms and pretty little pieces. Paper Treasure has become a favorite source for those looking for charming, one of a kind locket necklaces. Each necklace has been named after a different, actual shipwreck and comes tagged with information about its namesake as well as a signature ship charm at the clasp.
Once upon a time, the designer was working on her very first collection while simultaneously watching a television special about under water excavation. She became captivated by the bits of treasure, coins and jewelry that were being salvaged from the depths ancient shipwrecks. How perfect! since she also grew up at the ocean and spent the summers of her youth staring dreamily out to sea and combing the beaches for colorful seaglass and shells. Now she just holds the ocean in her heart and combs the thrift stores in search of magical materials to use in the creation of her thoughtful jewelry line, Paper Treasure.
