Brooklyn Charm: Grand Opening, March 26th, 7 - 10 PM

Williamsburg's newest jewel is, Brooklyn Charm, is opening March 26th, thanks to a few ingenious jewelry designers; among them, Old Hollywood's own Tracie Howarth. Brooklyn Charm will be the only store in the neighborhood that lets you design your own jewelry. Choose from their incredible array of vintage deadstock charms and beads and have one of their designers put it all together for you, or do it yourself at home! There will also be a selection of jewelry from local designers, plus design workshops like "Wire Wrapping" and "Basic Jewelry Assemblage." The store is the result of the designers' Etsy success, and they'll be offering Etsy consultations at the new space.

Can't wait? Well, lucky for you the soft opening was today. Stop in and buy a raffle ticket to win one of five great prizes at next week's fete. There'll be drinks and delectables, too.

145 Bedford Ave. (N. 9th Street Entrance)

In the meantime, stop by Old Hollywood to see some of Tracie's own designs - and find inspiration for yours!
