No matter the piece, my inspiration is received from a higher source.
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) April 30, 2013
Bead Lovers Korner (http://www.beadloverskorner.etsy.com) will introduce its handcrafted beaded jewelry to Hollywood and the international jet set with the inclusion of business cards in celebrity swag bags, to be presented in a 2013 Mother’s Day Celebrity Gift Bag put together by The Artisan Group and at GBK’s Gift Lounge for the 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival.
The Mother’s Day Gift Bag will go to some of Hollywood’s most talked about Moms, including Megan Fox, Snooki, Jennifer Nettles, Giuliana Rancic, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Vanessa Lachey, Anna Faris, Claire Danes, Adele, Jessica Simpson, Shakira, Holly Madison, Amanda Righetti, Busy Philipps, Jenna Dewan, Kristen Bell, Gisele Bündchen, Kim Kardashian, Kristin Cavallari, Evan Rachel Wood, Sara Rue, Lisa Ling, Malin Ackerman, Hilaria Thomas (Mrs. Alec Baldwin) and Penélope Cruz. The bag will be delivered in time for Mother’s Day on May 12.
The GBK Gift Lounge for the Cannes Film Festival takes place May 17-20 in Cannes, France.
Why business cards? “Due to my current order schedule I was unable to create the number of items needed for these two gifting events. On the other hand, I didn't want to pass up the opportunity to gain exposure,” said Gari Anne Kosanke, jewelry designer/proprietor, Bead Lovers Korner. “When I learned that The Artisan Group offered a Business Card Only option, I decided this would be a great alternative. I’ve included an exclusive coupon on the back of the cards that I hope will encourage recipients to take a look.”
Bead Lovers Korner has been the source for meaningful, purposeful and/or useful handcrafted jewelry with a quirky, sentimental and sometimes nerdy edge since 2002. Kosanke creates her mostly one-of-a-kind jewelry and accessories using quality, hand-picked materials culled from her collection of unique beads, clasps and findings gathered from around the world.

Kosanke is known for her European-style charm bracelets, unique key chains and rosaries, the latter created with a special dedication in accordance with their spiritual significance for the owner. Her company, Bead Lovers Korner, is respected for its dedication to producing lifetime jewelry and its adherence to a no holds barred customer satisfaction policy that incorporates an almost unheard of 30-day refund policy.
“No matter the piece, my inspiration is received from a higher source,” said Kosanke. “Sometimes ideas just pop into my mind. Many times the more I handle different stones the more ideas occur. As a one-person business, I’m often too busy shipping orders to execute all the ideas I come up with so I draw them out to work on another time. Sometimes the urge to create what I have imagined is so intense that I simply must stop and create—I literally feel distracted to the point that I have to manifest the piece in order to feel better.”
Kosanke maintains an Etsy shop (http://www.beadloverskorner.etsy.com) that is dedicated primarily to her handcrafted jewelry and accessories, and also an independent website (http://www.beadloverskorner.com) where, as an authorized dealer of Carlo Biagi Jewelry and Landmark Beads, she is able to sell these jewelry components that are compatible with popular European style bead and charm bracelets.
Kosanke is an Accredited Jewelry Professional with the Gemological Institute of America and a member of the juried, by-invitation-only, The Artisan Group, an arts promotion organization whose focus is on spreading the word about handcrafted goods.
