Before opening this boutique with her mother, Stella Ng, in September 2008, Parsons grad Szeki Chan lived in the upstairs apartment and sold her eponymous line of silver and raw brass jewelry from the front stoop. The space is small and rustic, with creaky wooden floors, decorative branches adorning the walls, and an antique sewing machine in the front window. Szeki (nicknamed CK) sells her jewelry alongside limited-edition pieces from her mother’s Hong Kong–based clothing line, 7115. The collection arrives in bi-weekly shipments and includes super-soft layerable cotton tees, delicately beaded knit dresses, and tops sporting details like front pleats, woven belts, and funky, twisted necklines. The jewelry drapes over twigs on wooden shelves, like a Swarovski crystal pendant dangling from a brass branch, chunky black resin rings, miniature ax and hammer charms, and silver necklaces crafted from watch gears. Szeki works at a small table in the back of the shop and also offers custom designs in 14- or 18-karat gold.
