All jewelry makes a statement. Too bad your sensible collection of pearls whispers, “Grandma.”
Turn up the volume with Hippie Chic, the candy-colored jewelry line from Kyle Barber, one half of the sister act behind dollhouse-size boutique Duo. Visit the Book Hill shop to peruse racks of affordable, brightly beaded wonders of every size and length. (Tip: Assemble an arm party with help from the sparkle-encrusted Bob bracelets.)
Barber also consults with customers to reimagine and restring favorite necklaces. (That souvenir strand from the Grand Canyon never looked so good.) She even customizes baubles for bridesmaids.
Set up a consultation on-site or swing by the annual French Market sidewalk sale this weekend, where the crafty designer will sell select Duo stock at 50 percent off.
Now we’re talking.
Available this Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., at The Georgetown French Market, Wisconsin Avenue Northwest, between P Street and Reservoir Road Northwest; Duo, 1624 Wisconsin Avenue Northwest, between Q Street and Dent Place Northwest (202-652-0837 or duodc.com).
