Over the summer jewelery designer Lauren Wolf opened up shop in the Temescal area of Oakland. Her shop, Esqueleto, is a lovely bright spot off Telegraph - just walking in the door makes me happy ...




So, imagine my surprise when I got this for my birthday...


The hubs remembered my going a bit gaga over this ring when we stopped in to Esqueleto shortly after its opening day. It was a complete surprise. He picked me up after work on my birthday and we set off for Tahoe - about a half hour into the drive he asks me to reach in the drawer under the passengers seat to get something for him and well there was my little package from Esqueleto. It was the perfect Birthday surprise.

I love Lauren's nature inspired designs and the fact that each piece is unique. And, Lauren herself is super sweet. See her other designs here. If you're in Oakland make sure to stop by and see all the wonderful pieces in person.


  1. So nice of him to do that! Happy birthday :) This store looks so pretty! I'm not in Oakland often, but this another place for my checkout list. You should make a must see/shop/eat in Oakland kind of list!!

  2. Awww, Mario is so sweet! And I can easily see why you fell for this ring, stacked studs - soooo perfect!
