Spotted / Oakland, CA / Crown Nine
I hadn’t stopped by Kate Ellen’s Crown Nine in Old Oakland since she moved out of her old space some time ago, so I popped in to say hello and took some fresh new photos for my site. And shopped while I was at it, too. I absolutely adore the new shop which is located just a block down from her previous spot. It’s a much cozier setup, but still just as darling. And her workspace is tucked inside the loft upstairs. Kate continues to display her beautiful handcrafted pieces along with those of other talented independent jewelry designers. She also has pieces of art and other sweet adornments for the home. My latest purchases include this silver and brass cuff designed by Kate herself + these darling rose gold studded hearts by local designer, Christy Natsumi. I wear both almost daily.
