If you want to ace the art of layering, look no further than our favorite new East Coast expat and Ursa Major jewelry designer, Kate Jones. When the Maine native isn’t busy creating mini metal masterpieces, she’s making a name for herself in the Bay, moonlighting as Taylor Stitch’s womenswear pro and helping the Valencia boys churn out some choice staples for us ladies — finally!
