About Us – Our Story
WHO ARE THESE TREASURE BEACH DESIGN PEOPLE? – “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it.” ~ Steve Jobs

Because we didn’t want to settle, we knew.

IT'S TIME FOR A CAREER CHANGE – “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” ~ Ferris Bueller
In the fall of 2015, we both felt we reached our apex in our careers and together we decided to leave our current positions to follow our dream of moving away from the countryside and closer to a seaside town. We became committed to one another and to starting our own business.
Business? Our own business? What kind of business? Time to do some research and serious self-assessments!
CHRISTMAS SUNRISE 2015 – “Sometimes you make decisions and have to wait for the rest of the world to catch up.” ~ Tracy Cornwell
In the winter of 2015, we were visiting family in Delaware and together we watched a beautiful sunrise Christmas morning at the beach. Listening to each other’s experiences as kids on the beach brought back a rush of really great memories. We were both deliriously happy – We were back, and we were home!
A NEW YEAR – “Love what you do and do what you love…” ~ Ray Bradbury
What better way to assess ourselves as individuals, partners, and of each other? Walking on the beach cleared our minds of doubt as we took mental notes of our talents, abilities, and experience.
We had a pretty clear picture of what we were capable of, the answer was right there in our minds, hands and pockets (and our shoes!). The beach, seashells, and driftwood would become our business.
It was time to make our move, an easy decision to realize.
A NEW HOME, A NEW JOB – “We draw on hope to start our day. We rely on faith to see it through. Love sustains it all.” ~ Tracy Cornwell
In January of 2016 we moved to Delaware with our initiative to expand our talents with our hearts, minds, and hands, along with a very strong and powerful determination to start our own business. Be your best, work hard, make the best product you can make. We continued to take stock of our proficiencies while trying to match our interests.
We found our new home and good luck signs were everywhere! We believed (and still do) that someone is watching over us.
WHAT ARE WE DOING? WHAT ARE WE MAKING? – “I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” ~ Albert Einstein
We continued walking along the shore (freezing!) picking up interesting looking pieces of shells, stones, rocks, and driftwood.
Our weekly routine visits to the beaches slowly turned into routine patterns of design work. We plugged into our creative minds and artistic ability and started making our own home décor, well, of sorts… Some might say sculpture work, photography, or just collections.
One important premise we both will always agree on is that there is a certain beauty in every piece we pick up – a creation that man could never re-create. We truly believe we are so fortunate to have this hands-on position to recognize this beauty and it is our sincere hope that others will be able to gain this insight as well.
WHEN DO YOU CLINICALLY QUALIFY “COLLECTING” AS AN OBSESSION? – “Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up” ~ A. A. Milne
As our “collection” started to GROW, so did we! We called ourselves “Conchologists!” The two of us held our first conchology “Board” meeting.
