Monthly Maker Spotlight: Desiree Salas Designs

This month we are featuring one of our favorite Oakland clothing designers, Desiree Salas. Desiree is an incredible designer that has been designing clothing for 10 years.  Her current line consists of vintage-inspired, feminine women’s clothing in bright floral or animal inspired prints that are designed for every season. All of her clothing is designed and sewn right here in Oakland, CA! Two of her signature pieces and best sellers are a dark denim 70's inspired wrap skirt and a 1940's inspired A-line wrap dress (see photos below).  Women of all sizes comment on how flattering the fit of her clothing is and how well the garments are sewn.

While not working on her clothing line, Desiree helps her husband run Cole Coffee, another locally owned Oakland business, which is a must to check out. Stop by Resurrect to see and try on her designs in person or you can check out her website to find her vending at local art fairs and events throughout the Bay Area. 

Desiree in her element!

Monthly Maker Spotlight: Mastrich Metals

We are thrilled to begin our blog by featuring one of our favorite makers that has been at the shop since the day we opened: Mastrich Metals!  Mastrich Metals is created by Devon Steck in her home studio in Maui, HI where she has lived since 2006. Devon personally designs and fabricates each piece of her jewelry line by hand. Her modern designs incorporate enameled copper, sterling silver fabrication, unique stone cabachons and the use of mixed metals. Her one of a kind jewelry has a modern edginess that really stands out, but is also easy to mix into your mix of daily accessories. 

 Devon has been and continues to be a huge part of Resurrect's success. She and her husband even came out to help with some construction  and store preparation during the week of Resurrect's grand opening! Stay tuned for future trunk shows with Mastrich Metals in 2016!  To see Devon's newest creations and artistic process follow @mastrichmetalsjewelry on Instagram.
