AK to Launch Jewelry Line
Alicia Keys has joined the long list of artists testing the entrepreneurial waters with the launch of her new jewelry collection, The Barber’s Daughters. With price points ranging from $85 – $2,500, the line will be introduced at a temporary shop at Collette Blanchard Gallery in Lower Manhattan. The store will be open 11.23 and 11.24 only to help generate buzz among the public and retailers for the brand’s fall 2010 launch.
Created in partnership with designer Gisèle Theriault, the Barber’s Daughters collection is comprised of sterling silver and gemstone pieces, each inscribed with poetry and prayers of Masaru Emoto, the author of “The Hidden Messages in Water.”
“I fell in love with the individuality of the pieces, but more than that, the words that were written on them really resonated with the songwriter in me,” said Keys. “I knew at that moment, for the first time, that through a whole other medium I would be able to spread inspiration and that’s what got me started.”
