for the love of OAK...

Crown Nine, the shop I've been helping to launch with two other jewelers, is part of the PopUpHood project. The video below explains it all and is completely entertaining. I have a little cameo too! Please watch, share and discuss as we're trying to gain as much momentum as possible. Thanks all!

my west coast self

Having grown up and lived my very young adult life in New England, the east coast forever has a hold on me. I have been living in Northern California for more than six years now and I have noticed my design sense changing and evolving because of it. I feel like I have dueling selves sometimes when it comes to how I design and what I'm drawn to. The good news is that style is a mash up of your personal inspiration (in my opinion) so I don't have to choose. However, I definitely have what I call "my west coast self" and "my east coast self," both of whom I will introduce you to. Today, meet west coast Sarah.
