Canada-based Black Star Boutique recently had its Gold Triangle Necklace make a small screen appearance on the neck of the Young and the Restless character Lily Winters Ashby (portrayed by Christel Khalil). The necklace was worn in the Wednesday, July 30th episode of the long running soap opera's 41st season. It was selected for use by the Young and the Restless’ wardrobe stylist, a situation made possible by Black Star Boutique’s owner/designer Tina Marie’s participation in a Stylist Gift Bag Initiative coordinated by the invite-only Artisan Group.
Black Star Boutique also participated in an exclusive Earth Day 2014 gifting, when the Artisan Group presented some of their member's most popular green/organic products to high-profile, environmentally conscious celebrities in the form of special prepared swag bags. Tina Marie and BSB’s contribution to the cause were eco-friendly acai seed bracelets. Celebrities who received these green gift bags included Drew Barrymore, Lisa Kudrow, Emma Watson, Ian Somerhalder, Mark Ruffalo, Anne Hathaway, Robert Redford, Will i am, Edward Norton, Cameron Diaz, Alicia Silverstone, and more.
All Black Star Boutique jewelry is handcrafted by Tina Marie, who ethically sources all materials to ensure they’re at their best. Tina Marie is a Canadian Reiki Master, believing in the power of gemstones to enhance their wearer’s life. Reiki (pronounced RAY-KEY) is a non-invasive, natural method of healing using an ancient hands-on technique that, when used in conjunction with other therapy methods, speeds recovery time by accessing energy to mend the mind, aid the spirit, and heal the body. Concerning her jewelry creations, Tina Marie said, “I use only the best materials and make each piece by hand. I believe in the metaphysical and holistic properties of the gemstone jewelry I make.”
