2 immensely talented jewelry designers make their return to Williamsburg this weekend. Poupette's Geri Kuhn was a fan favorite back in 2009 in our old haunt on North 6th Street with her boho vibe, her French flair and a style that could only be considered eclectically European. She returns with new pieces, new collections and some of that unmistakable Gypsy chic attitude (Saturday only). Sparklefarm's Erin Graves has been noticeably absent from the market these months but has been steadily working on her remix of old and new jewelry and accessories line and has a ton to show for it this weekend and next.
