Fab Chick: Alicia Keys Debuts New Jewelry Line

A few weeks ago we told you about a new business venture Fab Chick Alicia Keys was taking on. She's set to launch a jewelry line with partner jewelry designer Gisèle Theriault. The line will be filled with bold sterling silver pieces incorporating exotic stones. Each piece will be engraved with words of a prayer or poem written by Masaru Emoto. The multi award winning singer will debut the collection titled "The Barber's Daughter" in NYC at Collette Blanchard Gallery next Monday. The line is set to hit retail next fall, 2010.

This is what she had to say about the line:
“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.”

Keys said her mission is “to give people beautiful, unique pieces with messages that ignite them to find the best within” and that she has long wanted to get involved in accessories.

“Jewelry is a great first step,” said Keys, who recently started AK Worldwide, a company that will focus on her non musical endeavors. “I think accessories are exceptional, because it is a simple way for people to express their own style.”
