    Jewelry designer (and D.C.-to-NYC transplant) Paula Mendoza's newest jewelry collection, dubbed "New York Icons," takes inspiration from some of the most noteworthy names in fashion — Anna Dello Russo, Miroslava Duma, and Hanneli Mustaparta, for starters. For Mendoza, each piece tells her personal story of living in New York City and being surrounded by women she admires for their talent, strength, and, of course, style. Pretty sweet, right?

    Luckily, you don't have to hop a train north to see the downtown-cool jewels — Mendoza is bringing them to Tabandeh Jewelry for a trunk show on Friday. Sneak out for a lunchtime trip to Friendship Heights to see the earthy-yet-edgy baubles, which Mendoza creates by mixing shiny and matte metals with colorful, often raw-cut gems. We're already swooning over the rings and bracelets in lovely shades of green and blue, and we've never seen a more ADR-esque piece than the statement cuff. Click through to see our choice favorites.

    When: Friday, November 30, 12-5 p.m.
    Where: Tabandeh Jewelry, 5300 Wisconsin Avenue NW; 202-244-0777.
