I recently stumbled upon jewelry designer Kate Ellen’s boutique as I was exploring Old Oakland. A pretty sign with a crown caught my eye and led me down a quaint alley into this gorgeous little shop. I absolutely fell in love with everything in an instant: the fresh open space, the decor and styling, and every exquisite piece of jewelry on display—many designed by Kate herself, as well as other local and independent designers who I’ve come to admire, like Sarah Swell and Hellbent. And after seeing the collection by BOET, I’m now a huge fan.
