I took this pic of Angie the other day on our instagr.am/poketo and you guys loved it… you might wonder what she’s rocking… pants by Comme Des Garcons, the shoes by Rosa Mosa, and the awesome pop of Poketo details are the necklace, belt, and the watch… click the links below, you can find it all on Poketo.
Love the pop of warm sunshine on this belt…
Artist Melanie Nakaue hand makes these necklaces… this is a special “Poketo” colorway sold exclusively on our site…
The Poketo x Furni Colorparty digital watch… it’s subtle, fun, colorful… enough said.
We are absolutely thrilled to work with artist and maker, Melanie Nakaue on these clay necklaces. We got to know Melanie through Poketo, she was helping us out here at the studio with odds/ends and special project. When she gave Angie a necklace as a gift, Angie freaked out as each of these are lovingly handmade from clay. Whenever Angie wore it out, compliments came pouring her way.
This first edition is a limited number of 6 chromatic and monochrome. We worked with Melanie specifically on these color ways… Did you notice, they are Poketo colors? Whatever way you slice it, each piece is gorgeous and eye catching, a wearable work of art.
Tanya Aguiniga’s signature Rope Knot bracelets and necklaces make a huge fashion statement. We met Tanya years ago, picking up a number of her pieces for ourselves. All of the objects in her collection are designed, hand dyed, hand sewn, all of it put together by hand, by Tanya and her team. We’ve been been fans since day one, so no doubt, it was an honor to visit her studio in Atwater Village, Los Angeles, to see her process and catch up on all the new goods and projects she’s been working on. Check out those chairs!
See her bracelets on Poketo.

Spring is here and summer is just around the corner. What? You haven’t noticed? Then, you should definitely should stop what you’re doing right now and enjoy a walk outside. Nature is a great source of inspiration. It may even provide a possible solution to that project you’ve been working on right now.
At the shop, we found this delicate jewelry line that certainly benefits from a little of Mother Nature’s nudging.
The Peltate necklace and earrings echo the way stems attach in lily pads and gingko leaves–from the center rather than the edge. Look closely and you see that the leaf’s veins radiate from the center and fork repeatedly to produce a tree-like pattern like so:

The Perlin necklace is composed of three leaves, each with a different pattern. The next time you’re out, take a second look at the leaves around you. They’re like fingerprints that never quite repeat.
Can you see how this leaf’s veins are different from the necklace’s?

The Full Moon necklace reminds us of the Moon, but its inspiration is really much closer to home. Can you see the connection?
