Cork And Hardwood Canisters from Melanie Abrantes

Designer Melanie Abrantes has connected with her Portuguese roots by selecting cork as one of her signature materials. Sustainably sourced from Portugal cork is antibacterial and porous making it the perfect material for use in this selection of dry goods bowls. She has paired the vessels with locally sourced walnut and cherry offered in a range of sizes. Each is hand crafted in her Oakland studio.

Wood Necklaces by Jason Lees Design

These African inspired necklaces take beautiful morsels of rich woods like walnut, fir, and African wenge layering them together for accessories that look like candy. Pieces are dipped in bright colors and paired with brass accents. Everything comes together on a vegetable tanned leather cord in northern California. Don’t bite too hard. You might get a nasty splinter so keep these around your neck.
