In February 2011 I was invited to have several of my designs to be included in the gift bags to the stars at the Red Carpet Gifting Suite the night before the Academy Awards were presented. It was held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills from 9am - 8pm. It was SOOO much fun!
My goal was to inspire a famous actor to do an Extreme Makeover of the small brick building in the village where the women made the jewelry. Many were interested but also have causes already committed to. Some gave me direction and others took my card to pass on to another potential "benefactor". Nothing did come of it, but it was a great way to share my jewelry and passion for preserving it and I got a lot of free publicity. The paparazzi were there out in force and did many interviews and videos that got published everywhere! Some of them wore the pieces on the red carpet or at other publicity and charitable events and sent me photos. It opened some doors for many other opportunitites also. The above pieces were earrings we included in the gift bags. Amethyst, blue topaz and garnet earrings. Enjoy!
