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.
