Singer actress and now jewelry designer

on Wednesday,December 02,2009 21:12


Finding an outlet for one''s creativity can be a serious challenge - but not for the rich and famous! As such, Grammy award winning singer, song-writer Alicia Keys is the latest celebrity to step into the world of jewelry design.

Keys, whose real name is Alicia Augello Cook, has recently announced the creation of a collection of inspirational accessories for women called "The Barber''s Daughter" to be co-created by famed jeweler Gisele Theriault.

"I love Gisele''s work. I feel like I''m wearing art," boasts Keys on the line''s website. "I love how each piece is so individual, beautiful, handcrafted and one-of-a-kind… They remind me of the things I want to hold onto every day. It feels in a way like a shield."

Each piece is adorned with jewels and gemstones and engraved with inspirational words and phrases from such influential cultural icons as Mohandas Gandhi, Buddha and Shakespeare.

Earlier in the year, Theriault and keys collaborated on the design of a necklace, whose $25,000 auction price was donated towards the Keep a Child Alive foundation, a charitable organization that works with African families afflicted with AIDS.
