Big Rapids, Michigan (PRWEB) February 12, 2013
HeidiLee Design (http://heidilee-design.myshopify.com/) jewelry has been selected for use on CW TV's The Vampire Diaries and HBO's True Blood and will be showcased on display and included in Celebrity Gift Bags at GBK’s Gift Lounge for the 2013 Academy Awards, February 22-23, 2013 in Beverly Hills, CA.
At the Gift Lounge, Kinnally will have her "Industrial Style Bracelet Collection" on display and her signature "Moroccan Lace Earrings" included in celebrity swag bags. The GBK Gift Lounge takes place February 22-23, 2013 at an exclusive location in Beverly Hills, California.
The display collection includes a "Unisex Studded Copper Cuff" that Kinnally hand-forged from heavy gauge copper sheet and adorned with brass rivets. There is also a 2-inch wide, hand-forged "Copper Chevron Cuff" accented with brass rivets and eyelets in a chevron pattern and a "Unisex Mixed Metal Cuff," hand-forged from copper and accented with brass eyelets and bronze lace around the edges. The Collection is capped off with a rustic, textured money clip.
“I put this Collection together to appeal to both men and women,” stated Kinnally. “The pieces have clean lines and an easy-to-wear-with-anything vibe that I think Hollywood will appreciate.”
The "Moroccan Lace Earrings" included in celebrity swag bags, to be handed out at The Artisan Group exhibit, highlight Kinnally’s signature "Moroccan Lace" edging technique, an innovation that Kinnally wrote about in a recent issue of Wire Art Magazine. The earrings are fashioned from either bronze or copper and feature a variety of colored Czech Glass beads. They are what Kinnally describes as “elegant Bohemian.” Each pair of earrings is thoughtfully packaged in a chocolate-colored Organza bag along with a signature photo business card.
Kinnally is also coming off several successful gifting opportunities with The Artisan Group. Most recently wardrobe stylist Audrey Fisher selected Kinnally’s "Unisex Mixed Metal Cuff" for use during Season 6 of HBO’s “True Blood,” which premieres in June. In addition, Leigh Leverett, wardrobe stylist for “The Vampire Diaries,” selected Kinnally’s "Dangerous Yet Beautiful Silver Blade Earrings" to be worn in an upcoming episode of the show. Kinnally had her work introduced to both stylists via The Artisan Group’s Stylist Gift Bag initiative.
Amy Poehler has been photographed out and about wearing Kinnally’s “Color Drenched Bangles” on several occasions, after receiving them as part of a The Artisan Group collaborative gift bag in 2012.
