Tucked into a small building near the Ferry terminal and the two small bridges on the walk between the pier and Front Street it is most easily located by walking through the parking lot..

We first visited The Art Box Gallery five or six years ago, and I make it a point to return every time we visit St. Maarten. The owner and jewelry artist, Zdenka, has done an amazing job with her tiny space, where you will find all kinds of treasures. Her specialty is pearl and leather jewelry (I own three pieces),...

I have known this artist for years. She is now an acclaimed designer with amazing ideas. She has a fantastic history of escaping war torn Europe years ago. No where on the Island will you find her quality of work. Her jewelry is one of a kind at affordable prices. Any piece you buy will become a treasure!

Pop into this little outlet and you won't leave without buying something! The jewellery is unusual and beautifully made, some expensive but others very affordable; the paintings and object d'art exquisite. You will be met by the owner who is charming and knowledgeable and I guarantee you will leave having made a purchase.

The Art Box has been my favourite shopping spot in St. Maarten for 3 years now. I always find a unique, hand made piece of jewellery that is very affordable. Sometimes the jewellery is a gift. I love watching my family member's face light up when she opens and sees the the piece chosen especially for her taste. Last time... More

We found this place based on other TripAdvisor reviews and I was so glad we did :) The owner/artist was not in, but the woman there knew her stuff, traveled with the owner on procurement trips and was quite helpful.

I'm always looking for local handcrafted gifts whe I travel and I found this gem of a store in St Maarten. One of the first stores you see when tossing the bridge from the port you will automatically be lured in from first glance in the store. They have wonderful handcrafted jewelery in all price ranges from the wonderful pearls... More
