The Sonshine Center’s Jewelry Creations store is not currently open. We should be able to open when we enter our Phase 3 of re-opening sometime in September. This is when visitors will be allowed back in the Center.

However, we do have some of our jewelry available on our online Etsy store! If you choose to purchase something through Etsy, please let our Assistant Director Mrs. Jaime know at and she can make it available to you when you bring or pick-up your child/sibling. This will save you the cost of shipping and handling.
