We are thrilled to welcome new line Atelier Narcé to ESQUELETO! The jewelry in the Atelier Narcé collection has been hand-crafted based on impressions of ancient Near Eastern seals and in XVlll-XlX renderings of pieces of art of the classical antiquity. Designer Iohann Pita draws inspiration from the artworks themselves or from great works of literature. Iohann’s designs convey the mystery, the puzzle and the wonder of our personal memories – remembered or forgotten – still sleeping somewhere inside of us.

On this Earth Day we are reminded to check in with the policies and procedures we utilize as a business and ask: “How can we do better?” True sustainability requires our consistent commitment to better ourselves, empower each other, provide value for our clientele, and protect the Earth in the process.

Our business functions as both a platform for a growing community of independent artists, and a destination for mindful shoppers looking for pieces reflective of their own originality. Our shop is curated with integrity of design and longevity in mind. We hope that by moving away from a... Read More

IN THE GALLERIES

April 1, 2019
by Alexis Adams
This month we open three new gallery shows, in each of our locations. Exploring themes of surreal, fragmented narratives and wild, animalistic emotions, these exhibits showcase exciting new work by three of our favorite California-based artists. First up, for the First Friday art walk ESQUELETO Oakland is pleased to present a solo show from XO Finn! Finn's wild, graphic animal portraits inhabit light, dark, and all the shadows in between, both literal and figurative. Artful cuts and crops paired with splashes of color lend an edge to her work creating emphasis and moments of surprise. Finn's highly detailed pen and ink work is a study in nature's spectrum of a kingdom of... Read More
