What’s a Treasure Hunt? 

— A Treasure Hunt is where you go look for the Hidden Treasures that Samantha creates! They will be shared on Instagram if you would like to join in on the hunt.


What IS a Hidden Treasure?

— It’s a special collection of pieces that Samantha creates and hides in the real world! The designs may or not be made again, but most will be First of Firsts! Not everything will be jewelry, either. They might be trinkets, tokens, or amulets. 


But, WHY?

— Soon, all will be revealed!.. (in a longer form YouTube video).


Can I just buy a Hidden Treasure?

— Unfortunately Hidden Treasures are not a part of Samantha’s regular jewelry line. The hidden treasures (AND the treasure chest they come in) are collectibles! Sometimes the Hidden Treasures may become a purchasable collection at a later date.. So keep your eyes peeled!

You should definitely hold onto the both pieces of treasure for the future, as there *may* be an opportunity to trade ;)


I want to watch Samantha make the Hidden Treasures/paint the chests!

— You will be able to, soon enough! We’re working diligently to setup the Twitch channel (you can follow the channel now! @sammidulay) and YouTube so that we can share more of the creation process with you, in real time!


Tell me about the treasure chest!

— Samantha collaborated with a friend to make 3D printed treasure chests, that she then hand painted with pain staking detail. Each treasure chest is a tiny work of art in itself, we can’t wait for YOU to get your hands on one!
