HeartBox is designed to hold heartfelt, inspirational messages on business-card-sized notes. Perfect for newlyweds, birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, retirements and memorials:
Guests/Sender please write a one (or two, or three) word-from-the-heart message and place in the HeartBox.
 Receiver as you go through your life pull a message from your HeartBox whenever you feel drawn to do so.  Feel loved, empowered, inspired, blessed and honored by your friends and family.

 A HeartBox also makes a great container for jewelry and other beloved treasures.  The HeartBox is an ideal "I love you" gift from the heart.   

Now you can select a HeartBox from one of three sizes.  Because each HeartBox is one-of-a-kind and individually hand crafted one at a time measurements are approximate.  A medium HeartBox stands 5" tall, is 12" in diameter and holds about 100 messages.  

Each HeartBox™  is individually handcrafted and unique.  Exact patterning and coloration will vary.

For customization contact Kathleen at:  Type "HeartBox order" in the subject line.

For several weeks I worked on new designs for my HeartBox Series.   Here is the design created for my out-of-town son and his family for Christmas.  Local family members wrote heart-felt messages, inserted them in the box then off it went to our loved ones far away.

“The show’s most unique gift items come from an artist who is new to the gallery this year. Kathleen DeQuence Anderson creates polymer clay figures in the shape of standing hearts. Each is decorated in highly creative original patterns, some with beads and other adornments. Each figure functions as a box — the top comes off to reveal a tiny stash space big enough for a special message or keepsake. Ms. Anderson’s work has been shown in galleries across the East Coast, and she has been featured in the journal Black Art in America.”
