Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) July 28, 2012
It's been only hours since the world watched the opening ceremonies of the London 2012 Olympics, and for the first time in the history of the Games, each national delegation included women, and a record 45 percent of athletes were women.
Against this historic backdrop, House of Shakti Jewelry of Beverly Hills would like to single out for special recognition Sarah Attar, one of the first of two female Olympians ever sent to the Games by the kingdom of Saudi Arabia in a precedent-shattering move this year.
Attar, 19, a junior at Pepperdine University and a graduate of Escondido High School in California who will compete in the 800 yard dash, received House of Shakti's signature design, a scarf-and-gemstone necklace."The scarves are beautiful," wrote back the trailblazing young Olympian.
"As an American of Palestinian-Muslim descent, it is of great interest to me to encourage woman to pursue their dreams whether they be in the field of academics, athletics, the arts, business, or whatever they so choose," said House of Shakti founder and owner Lubna Salah, born in Chicago to Palestinian immigrants. "When I heard about Sarah, I felt compelled to express my heartfelt admiration for serving as an inspiration for so many women."
House of Shakti, based in Beverly Hills, creates spiritually inspired handcrafted jewelry for healing and empowerment. Other notable personalities that House of Shakti has gifted include Dr. Maya Angelou, Sarah Jessica Parker, Louise Hay and Katie Holmes.
