A tiny sliver of a shop, the walls of The LINE display handmade jewelry going up to about 600rmb, from designers including the European Zoaje and Makre, and local designs from Point Lines, Paulieposh, Clab, and Anise.
the LINE earrings
Most pieces are simple and earthy, all picked by owner Kelly Wang. Wang also runs WALK the LINE on Anfu Lu, a shoe store stocked with the latest from international brands; they come straight from the factory with slight defects so she can sell at a competitive price, from 400-800rmb (in sizes 35-40). WALK the LINE has the same minimalist style as the LINE.
The most striking collection in the LINE comes from Makre, inspired by Asia and “unconditional love” from Serbian sisters Marina and Katerina Erdeljan. Pieces are made of brass, steel, recycled silver, silk, crystals, and gems, all with fair-trade materials from Asia and Europe.

The LINE also sells their own line of jewelry and essential oil-based natural products such as candles, lip balm, hand cream, and air fresheners. These are made in a small workshop where Wang and her partner Jessie Miao decide on ingredients and scents. Candles are a bit pricey (as homemade candle tend to be) ranging from 48-128rmb. The colorful 40g candles would make a good stocking stuffer. 'Tis almost the season!
