About the job


ESQUELETO features a thoughtfully curated selection of fine jewelry, artwork, and both handcrafted and natural objects. Owner Lauren Wolf first opened the shop’s doors in 2011 after relocating to Oakland from New York, where she established her namesake line, Lauren Wolf Jewelry. In 2015 ESQUELETO expanded to Echo Park, where Lauren opened her second store in the up-and-coming LA neighborhood. 2015 also marked the launch of ESQUELETO online, our comprehensive e-commerce site. In 2019 the company expanded again, adding a third brick-and-mortar in Los Angeles’ Los Feliz neighborhood and a fourth brick and mortar location in NYC. We’ve just opened our fifth location in sunny San Diego!
