The motto at this boutique is “real objects made by real people,” and the treasures therein have a handmade, one-of-a-kind feel. The interior is parts urban and rustic, with exposed brick and fencepost-wood panels. The jewelry assortment includes unisex pendants, stackable cuffs and studs ideal for multiple piercings. Owner Kate Ellen, a metalsmith herself, has earned a following for her black diamond engagement rings. Her baubles accompany those of more than 20 other designers from the Bay Area and beyond, including Sarah Swell, Colette Ishiyama, Claire Sommers Buck and Christy Natsumi.
