Recently in NYC I’ve gained a few new makeup clients, one of them is the very talented jewelry designer Tracie Howarth, owner of Brooklyn Charm. I’ve worked with Tracie on various fashion events and recently did her makeup when she was being interviewed for ABC TV in the USA. What’s really special and unique about Tracie’s store Brooklyn Charm is that it’s a place where you can create your own jewelry. Along the walls and tables in the shop are spools of various chains, boxes of various charms, containers of stones and gems. You’re given a tray to collect the items you like and Tracie or one of her talented staff will then assemble the necklace or bracelet for you. If you want to learn how to make your own jewelry, there are classes held at the store on various evenings. I think the concept of this store is great because you really are guaranteed to get a one of a kind creation. Tracie also sells vintage rings, pre-made up pieces and various other pieces of jewlery.
