This coming weekend we welcome our favorite Mainer, Cat Bates, to the Oakland shop! To create his nautical- and nature-inspired designs Cat takes iconic items, like a found seagull bone or the functional oarlock of a boat, and distills them down to their most elemental forms before sand-casting in bronze. I was able to chat with Cat this week, asking him to elaborate on his process and inspirations. We are so excited to host Cat and his full line of unique, unisex adornments this weekend!

Founded by Lauren and bestie (and ESQ artist) Rebecca Overmann, Melee is held bi-annually in the gorgeous High Line Hotel in Chelsea. This was the 4th season of the to-the-trade-only show, which features 48 fine jewelry designers exhibiting their collections for buyers and the press. We love visiting with the designers we carry in ESQUELETO, getting to see (and try on!) their newest pieces in person, and catch up over a flute (or two) of champagne. Keep your eyes peeled for beautiful new items coming soon from ESQ favs Scosha, Wwake, Rebecca Overmann,... Read More
