About a year ago I applied to a group called the Artisan Group. It is a juried group of many artists that gift their creations to actresses & actors individually and at different award ceremonies like the Golden Globes or CMA Awards plus many others. It was exciting to be accepted into their talented pool of artists.
I really didn't pursue any of the gifting until recently. I was fortunate to get in on gifting
Denise Richards and her children. So I looked at pictures and thought wow!
1- She is beautiful.
2- She is very minimalistic in her jewelry.
3- She doesn't need jewelry it would detract from her earthy effortless look.
So I searched the internet and read what I could about her. I did find her in some jewelry. One picture of her had a very long necklace that hung down to her navel and looked fabulous on her. She had a bit of a rocker vibe in that picture. So I thought I could do something edgy. I also found a picture of her wearing a menagerie chain necklace, which gave me a little more hope. Maybe ...... I can actually design a necklace for her or send her one of my signiture styles.
So I started to design her a faux pearl (she is vegan) Tie Chi necklace....it is a design idea that I have been playing with and I thought with her simplistic style she could wear it with many things and pearls would look lovely on her. The design was based on this original look.
This was a fairly new look that I have been playing with and not really tested yet so I doubted my decision. Plus I thought the whole pearl thing felt a bit boring. I went back to some of my original work and put together some choices and decided to elicit the help of my new friends at the CBC / Creative Bead Chat and I also posted it to The Artisan Group.
The consensus was the top right at the CBC and the bottom right at The Artisan Group. I decided to go with my beady friends. Many of these artists are published and have writen books and I can only emmulate and hope for a mustard seed of their talent someday!
So Denise Richards is getting the upper right necklace with the help of my creative friends.
I hope she likes it!
This is my first design getting sent to an actress. I am not gauranteed a photo of her wearing it or even a note, but if you do see her wearing it
... PLEASE CONTACT ME!!!!!!
I will definetly be scouring the interenet for that elusive photo of her wearing it if she does.
