Handmade etchings, prints, cards, earrings, engraved boxes, ornaments, and other items. I base many of my artworks on natural forms, and then I go on to re-interpret the image in my own way, working the image on paper to make a more idealized design, thickening or thinning lines and negative spaces in order for the image to translate best into the medium that the final creation would be made of. The process continues into the craftsmanship, for instance choosing the best hardwoods and thicknesses of woods that I laser cut into the earrings, or the choice of inks and papers that I print my prints with, on an old fashioned hand crank press. Recently I acquired an antique clothes wringer and am successfully using it as a linocut printing press.

I use vegetable tanned leather. This is not pre-dyed and conditioned leather that you will see many places. Vegetable tanned leather preparation is extensive, but it leaves the overall creation of every aspect of the project up to the maker. I purchase my hides in person, inspecting every skin for flaws and character. Patterns are traced and cut by hand. The sides are beveled to create professional edges. Holes for sewing are marked and then punched, one by one. Before assembly each project has to be dyed with an eco-friendly waterstain. By coloring my own leather I am able to accept custom color requests and work with the leather’s character. Each item receives a coat of oil and finish to aid in water resistance and endurance. The effort put into each product tells its own tale through time.
My work stems from the ancient tradition of ornament as expression of higher self. Each piece, hand fabricated from raw metal and powerful stones, is a unique gesture. Cultures rise and fall but their sacred adornments outlast the gods they were made to venerate. The desire to adorn is as old as humanity and is an impulse that deserves to be honored. Available for art direction and photo shoot styling, contact for inquiries.

I love to sew! My mom taught me how to make doll clothes when I was a little girl and I just kept going. I believe that the things we use daily should be beautiful and I love making practical items in fabrics that make me happy.
The majority of my jewelry is metal stamped which involves hammering each letter or design, one at a time, into the metal. Because of this tedious and intricate process, even if I'm creating multiples of the same piece, every one will be slightly different in their own way. This also ensures that no two pieces are ever going to be the exact same and that yours is exclusively unique.
Lauren Wolf discovered her love for casting found objects while learning the art of metalsmithing in the mountains of Mexico. Today, Lauren Wolf Jewelry is best known for creating unusual engagement rings using ethically-mined, rare colored diamonds and can be found in over sixty boutiques nationwide. Produced in California, with roots in New York City–where the brand was born and based for eight years– Lauren Wolf Jewelry often incorporates seemingly contradictory elements in order to produce designs that are at once primitive and sophisticated, edgy and elegant, classic and unconventional. Upon relocating to the Bay Area in 2011, Lauren opened her first retail location, ESQUELETO. In 2015, ESQUELETO launched a Southern California outpost in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles.

I just want to make clothing that is easy for you to wear to all places you go. I hope to help you feel comfortable and pretty and confident. And I hope you don't have to put too much thought into your clothing. There are so many better things to do than worry about what you are wearing or what you are going to wear. Love through your life—your friendships and family, your pets, nature, adventures, hobbies, and last but not least, your work. And if in some way my clothes are part of all of that—then lucky me.
Lotfi bags are designed by Sharareh Lotfi in San Francisco and produced in Oakland. Founded in 2011, Lotfi was originally conceived as a women’s clothing line. Following the birth of her daughter, Sharareh was drawn to the idea of creating a minimal, un-fussy carry-all that was practical without being boring. Using simple materials like canvas and cotton rope, Lotfi bags are designed for daily use with an eye to those details that elevate every-day staples into treasured objects.
All of the materials that go into making these bags are sourced locally and domestically when possible. I use #10 waxed canvas from Martexin, a family business that has been producing the fabric since the 1800’s. The liner fabric is surplus from the Carhartt factory. The sturdy, bridle weight leather used for handles and straps is US sourced and from a local California business. The hardware is solid brass and comes from another family business in the Midwest. The bags are constructed with double seams for durability, and areas that get the most stress are reinforced with solid brass rivets.

The jewelry I make explores a modern, minimal style and a lighter, cartoon style, much like my previous ceramic work. Each style expresses a different side of my aesthetic - fun and youthful but also contemporary and clean. Enameling allows me to use fun colors in my cartoon inspired jewelry and bold color blocking in my New Century Modern line. I love to work from a drawing and then see where the metalworking and enameling take me.
