The baubles at this Temescal Alley store are artfully arrayed among cacti, ceramics, sharks’ teeth and cattle skulls. (Esqueleto is Spanish for “skeleton,” after all.) Though the space is loosely inspired by the Southwest, the accessories within are thoroughly modern, whether a barbed oxidized silver pendant or Jessica Niello’s oversize ceramic necklaces strung on leather. You’ll find a mix of dainty and bold styles here, from Satomi Kawakita’s miniature yellow gold studs and slender engagement bands to owner Lauren Wolf’s eye-catching claw rings showcasing sapphire, ruby and agate.
