Come out on Carbon DC (2643 Connecticut Avenue NW, Washington, DC) on this Saturday to feast your eyes (and your wallets) on some of the most gorgeous repurposed vintage jewelry you have ever seen. Kolton J jewelry line is a mix of vintage-inspired pieces, as well as, one-of-a-kind pieces that have been repurposed with vintage jewelry. View the line at Kolton J online before the trunk show. You will definitely want to see these pieces in person and add to your accessories collection. A percentage of the proceeds from the show’s sales will benefit the Polaris Project, a DC-based organization committed to combating human trafficking and modern-day slavery since 2002.
Founder and Designer Jenny Schretter – a native of the Washington area and current DC resident – will unveil her latest eco-luxurious collection made from recycled and reclaimed vintage materials. Schretter’s jewelry has been featured in publications such as InStyle Magazine, DailyCandy, Panache Mode Magazine, Worn Magazine, and will be featured in the October issue of Washingtonian Magazine.
The year-old label includes a vast repertoire of one-of-a-kind and limited edition designs. Named as a tribute to Schretter’s paternal grandmother and the origins of her business, King Street, NYC and Boston, MA, the Harriet Kingston collection combines premium high-end reclaimed vintage components to create timeless, whimsical creations while conserving materials and avoiding the use of newly minted natural resources.
