Brooklyn Design Show

haru™ One of Eleven New Vendors at Brooklyn’s 5th Annual Event

Brooklyn, NY, May 04, 2007 --( The spring season officially begins with the launch of the haru™ spring 2007 collection. Be among the first to see it at BKLYN DESIGNS, New York’s only curated design show open to the trade and public. There’s no better Mother’s Day gift than hand-crafted, distinctive, stunning jewelry pieces from haru™.

haru™ is among eleven new merchants taking part in BKLYN DESIGNS +, a brand new cash-and-carry market of fashion and home accessories added to this year’s event. The three-day show being held May 11th to 13th is presented by the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce and has expanded to include three venues, free seminars hosted by some of the industry’s best talent and an impressive list of trend-setting exhibitors.

haru™ – which means “spring” in Japanese, is the premiere destination for unique jewelry. The stunning collection was launched in 2004 and has been increasing in popularity ever since.

haru™ offers a wide variety of hand-crafted, custom-designed and collection pieces that merge classic and contemporary styles using semi-precious and precious gemstones, vintage glass and sterling silver. The line includes necklaces, earrings, bracelets and chokers that are flattering, feminine and speak to the individual personalities of the women who wear them. No two pieces are alike and each has their own unique name.

Notable haru™ clients include Essence magazine Editorial Director Susan Taylor, PR wiz Terrie Williams and Time Inc. CEO Ann Moore, who commissions pieces regularly. Time Inc. editors have worn haru™ during appearances on the NBC Today Show and FOX Morning News. The collection has also been featured in InStyle magazine. To view the haru™ collection, visit
