Gabriella Kiss

We are excited to announce the arrival of Gabriella Kiss's stunningly beautiful jewelry to Metier. Inspired by flora and fauna, and fascinated by nature's life cycles, Gabriella meticulously crafts treasures in fine metals featuring precious and semi-precious stones often in combination with found natural materials. These elements are fashioned into tiny green gold bug studs, delicate horn butterfly wing earrings, trailing vine necklaces and luminescent gem rings. Beyond just adornment, these timeless pieces speak deeply personal meanings to the wearer.

metier's freda girl(s) moment

Recently we were honored to be a part of the inspiring Freda Girl series started by the talented San Francisco-based footwear design duo, Megan Papay and Cristina Palomo-Nelson, of Freda Salvador. Longtime fans of their shoes - think insanely well-made, walkable flats and heels with major cool-girl appeal - we were thrilled to wear our current favorites for some fun photos in our hood.
