Shop Esqueleto

The aesthetics of a fine jewelry boutique located in California has me completely over the moon! With two locations, one in Oakland & the other in Los Angeles, Shop Esqueleto provides an incredible collection of handmade jewelry, ceramics, fine art and natural objects for the worldly and unique woman or man. Representing several different designers, the owner, Lauren Wolf- a transplant from New York & a jeweler herself- sells her collection and curates the two shops. Their site launched in 2015, allowing me to discover this amazing boutique, and through Lauren's eyes, I've been introduced to so many incredible handmade jewelry designers. Discoveries like these are so important to an artist and their work, I find strength and inspiration within these pieces and I am so thankful for the resource. Check out this amazing shop!
