Kathy Kamei Trunk Show

Join us this Saturday at McMullen on Grand Avenue for a Trunk Show featuring Bay Area jewelry designer Kathy Kamei. Meet Kathy, see all of her beautiful, inspiring pieces and pick up something special for Mom or for yourself.

About the Designer: Kathy Kamei

"The most important thing I have learned to do is to trust my inner voice," says Kathy Kamei, designer and CEO of the line of jewelry that bears her name, "and if I can create a piece of jewelry that inspires a person to break from the pack and celebrate their own uniqueness, that is the most exciting thing I can ever hope to do in my work."

Kamei's journey to create her company began with a courageous trip she took to Bali with her two daughters. "The Balinese are the most beautiful human beings I have ever encountered." Says Kamei, whose six-month excursion turned into a nine year romance with the land. "I had never seen such heart, love, spirit and graciousness expressed in a community."

Before Kamei left the island, she created her line of jewelry, hand-crafted in Bali by artisans. From pendants which encourage us to open our hearts, to earrings which remind us to be mindful, the message of each piece reaches toward spiritual fulfillment.

Amongst the high ceilings and grand columns that line the store you can find designers from Rag & Bone to MiH denim, Zero+Maria Cornejo to Vince and A.L.C. There is truly something for everyone at the new store and the ladies of McMullen couldn't be happier about it.

The first store, located at 4395 Piedmont Avenue in Oakland, CA is the place to go to find that perfect dress you've been searching for. The setting is intimate, warm and welcoming. Modern and clean, the space showcases some of the most sought after designers like 3.1 Phillip Lim, Nellie Partow and Ports 1961, to name a few. With an in-house alterations expert and incredibly knowledgeable staff, there is no doubt that this is the dress destination.
