Niles, IL (PRWEB) December 1, 2004
The Ashton-Drake Galleries announced today the introduction of an exciting and exclusive line of jewelry from internationally acclaimed artist, Thomas Kinkade. Long recognized as America's most collected living artist, Mr. Kinkade's foray into fine jewelry is an important Collectibles Market First, and an industry-acknowledged triumph for Ashton-Drake.
Thomas Kinkade collectors should note the collection includes an important limited-edition offering: The 2004 Thomas Kinkade Holiday Angel Pin! This is the very first pin ever to be offered by Thomas Kinkade, available in a strictly limited edition of only 1,000 pins worldwide! It showcases a stunning hand-enameled wreath, shimmering with 112 genuine bezel-set SwarovskiÂ® crystals and 18K gold-plated accents. An angel dangles from the center of the wreath, a symbol of peace, joy, and the glory of Christmas. Thomas Kinkade collectors are urged to act immediately, as enormous demand for this extremely rare Thomas Kinkade pin jewelry is expected. This fine jewelry pin is available exclusively online at collectiblestoday.com and nowhere else.
Also of interest is the extraordinary Thomas Kinkade Beacon of Hope Pendant, a breathtaking piece of lighthouse jewelry. This diamond-studded lighthouse pendant pays homage to the famed Kinkade paintings of stormy seas and lighthouse havens. It is available in both solid sterling silver or sterling silver and 18K gold-plated finishes, and is accompanied by a matching 18" chain.
For those who wish to wear an actual reproduction of Thomas Kinkade art, the Christmas Memories Garnet Pendant and Earring set is an excellent choice. The circular pendant is bordered by a sculptural wreath design with a 14K gold-plated finish. At its center is a magnificent reproduction of Thomas Kinkade's beloved painting, "Victorian Christmas II." The wreath is capped by a 14K gold-plated bow with a genuine garnet accent. Matching "bow " earrings also feature garnet accent stones, along with freshwater pearl drops.
The magnificently crafted Thomas Kinkade Garden of Prayer Sapphire and Sterling Silver Locket is another artistic tour de force. Open the intricate latticework face of this heart-shaped sterling silver pendant, and discover a miniature reproduction of Mr. Kinkade's enormously popular painting, "Garden of Prayer." On the back is an engraved message of inspiration. The pendant comes with an 18" sterling silver chain.
