CUL­TURED CON­CEPTS

Where Washington - - WHRE NOW -

In her bright Old Town bou­tique, Marie Noelle Akeg­nan sells a range of in­ter­na­tional and de­signer ac­ces­sories like bags, pon­chos and jewelry. She also de­signs and makes her own line of baubles. Us­ing seed beads from the United States, Africa and Ja­pan, she cre­ates dra­matic twisted neck­laces, bracelets and ear­rings in eye-catch­ing col­ors. “I used to travel a lot, and I’m try­ing to bring ideas from dif­fer­ent cul­tures into my work but with a con­tem­po­rary spin,” Akeg­nan says. Where to buy: 218 N. Lee St., Suite 101, Alexan­dria, Va., 571.206.1403
