We fell absolutely head over heels for these S.F. ‘hood necklaces as soon as we laid eyes on them at The Common’s Storefront pop-up party last month.
Created by jewelers Christine Aiko Beck and Iris Willow for their brand new label Kana, the handmade necklaces feature a narrow pendant with stamped letters that spell out the name of various sub-sections of the city.
“For the neighborhood necklaces, we stamped the sterling silver blanks, oxidized them, and then polished them to give them a brushed metal finish,” explains Beck.
As of today, the $70 necklaces are available at Cole Valley shop Egg & The Urban Mercantile and can be custom ordered with different neighborhoods, phrases, and even a shorter or longer chain than the 17” standard by emailing email@example.com or making a request at the boutique.
And, just like that, that locavore-themed holiday gift is crossed off your list.
