It seems like another musician is broadening her horizons by launching a jewelry line. Today, Alicia Keys new accessories line was shown at a temporary shop at Collette Blanchard Gallery. The line won’t actually be launched until 2010, but the event was supposed to get the word out to the public. Alicia Keys has always had a passion for jewelry, and feels that a small piece can express a lot in ones personal style. Keys joined up with jewelry designer Gisele Theriault to create the line, The Barber’s daughters. The collection will contain sterling silver and gemstone pieces, inscribed with poetry and prayers of Massaru Emoto, ranging from $85 to $2500. I have said my opinions on how I feel about celebrities constantly going from industry to industry trying to make more money. I feel like they need to stick to what they are truly good at so they can put all of their efforts into one talent to be as successful as possible. Don’t get me wrong, I am a huge Alicia Keys fan, and I think she is a very talented person, but I am always skeptical if these types of collections will actually do well (especially in a recession). I do respect that Ms. Keys, isn’t going all out with a full clothing collection, but is focusing on one aspect of the fashion industry. I also like that the price range is pretty broad, so pretty much anyone can afford at least one piece by her. I really hope that she does well with this collection, but I don’t want her to stop recording her music, because I am a huge fan.
