Ore Opens in the South End
We love unique wearable art, and a new shop in the South End promises to have lots to choose from. At Ore, jewelry designer Sophie Hughes has assembled a curated selection of jewelry from several local designers, including Lauren Passenti, Hannah Blount, and Laura Jaklitsch, as well as her own designs. The shop also stocks perfume from MCMC, bags by Meg Erickson, scarves from Ashley Conchieri, and the artwork of Wayne Stokes and Heather McGrath.
All of the jewelry currently featured was designed by young women, although Hughes was initially drawn to their collections because they each displayed a willingness go beyond the expected. While this unique jewelry is fun to wear, each purchase also supports local artisans and helps to launch the careers of creative young women. We can’t wait stop in and see what they’ve come up with!
Ore, 80 Dartmouth Street, South End. 617-247-7426. Open Tuesday-Sunday, 10-7; Mondays by appointment.
