San Francisco, California (PRWEB) December 17, 2013
Wishful Jewelry by Jess Kay Designs (http://www.jesskaydesigns.com) will participate in an invitation-only luxury celebrity gift lounge hosted by GBK Productions in honor of the 2014 Golden Globes Nominees and Presenters, where it will have its eco-friendly, fine silver earrings gifted to celebrities stopping by The Artisan Group® exhibit. The Gift Lounge will take place January 10-11, 2014 at an exclusive location in Beverly Hills, California.
Jessica Richards, designer/owner at Wishful Jewelry, was asked to create 100 pairs of earrings for the Golden Globes celebrity gifting. To fulfill the request, she created 50 pairs each of two different designs.
The first design, called “Ornate Geometric”, is a chandelier earring that is delicate, yet intricate and lightweight in design; it has an ornate butterfly pattern and draped sterling silver chains. The second design, “Triangular Bubble,” showcases a fun bubble pattern on a hand-cut triangular shape. Both earring designs have been lightly oxidized and are eco-friendly, using recycled silver.
Jessica handcrafted the earrings in her Northern California studio, using a time-intensive process that involves up to seven separate steps. The finished earrings will be presented to celebrities on walnut wood earring display cards tucked inside in a luxe Wishful Jewelry branded gift box.
In designing the earrings for the Golden Globes gifting, Jessica stayed true to her modern urban aesthetic, which she believes is a great fit for the celebrity recipients.
“The Wishful Jewelry customer has a fresh, easy style. She is aware of trends, and follows them selectively. She is also innately practical, which means she collects jewelry that is versatile, yet allows her to put her own mark on a look. The earrings I’ve designed for the Golden Globes Gift Lounge take all of this into account. They are contemporary yet classic. They’re distinctive enough to add a bit of edge but neutral enough to be worn every day.”
Wishful Jewelry’s “Ornate Geometric” and “Triangular Bubble” earrings are priced at $69.00 and are available to order at jesskaydesigns.com. Facebook fans (JessKayDesigns) are eligible for a 15 percent discount when using coupon code FB15 at checkout.
In other Wishful Jewelry news, Jessica will have her Draping Chains Teardrop Pendant necklace worn by character Bonnie (Kat Graham) on Episode 515 of the CW Network’s popular thriller, “The Vampire Diaries.” She has also designed a Snakeskin Geometric Heart Pendant Necklace for consideration of use by the wardrobe stylists on an upcoming episode of the CW Network’s “Hart of Dixie.” Noted Jessica, “It remains to be seen whether the necklace will be the ‘perfect match’ for an outfit worn by Zoe Hart or another character but either way, it was a blast to create. I was, of course, inspired by the show’s pet alligator, Burt Reynolds.”
Also, in keeping with Wishful Jewelry’s eco-friendly approach, Jessica recently began a partnership with the National Forest Foundation, where she will plant a tree for every piece of jewelry she sells.
Prior to embarking on her jewelry design career, Jessica was a retail store designer and graduated from the School of Architecture at the University of Oregon. All Wishful Jewelry designs are handcrafted using quality materials; either eco-friendly recycled silver or sterling silver, and gemstones. The company’s most popular designs are its textured rings and fairytale earrings, which feature sterling silver draping chains and an [optional] gemstone briolette which can be customized to suit the customer’s needs.
