Pleasanton, California (EastBayDaily) — Villain Accessories (http://www.villainaccessories.com) is pleased to announce that in association with The Artisan Group it will showcase its popular Trinity Rose Collection of pendants and earrings at GBK’s Luxury Gift Lounge in Honor of the 2013 Academy Awards Nominees & Presenters.
Trinity Rose pendants will also be included in The Artisan Group’s coveted swag bags, which will be gifted to celebrities who stop by their exhibit at the Lounge. The Lounge takes place February 22-23 in Beverly Hills, CA.
Brandi Collins, designer/owner, Villain Accessories, selected the Trinity Rose Collection for the Academy Awards because, “These are versatile accent pieces that integrate seamlessly with both day and evening looks.” The pieces are handcrafted by Collins and are available in Trinity Gold (24k gold over sterling silver); Trinity Pearl (sterling silver accented with freshwater pearls) and Trinity Sterling Silver (all sterling silver).
For the showcase piece, Collins created a display that highlights the pendants in all three variations, noting “People tend to be drawn to the rose that defines them most. For instance, perfectionists will usually gravitate toward the Gold Rose. I wanted celebrities to see all three options and be able to try on their favorite.”
The earrings will be shown in Trinity Gold, Trinity Silver and Trinity Pearl. Watch a Villain Accessories video here.
Trinity Rose pendants will be included in The Artisan Group celebrity swag bags. For these, Collins created custom packaging. Each pendant is nestled in an iridescent pearl black envelope with a black and white paisley interior. The envelope is closed with a wide black satin ribbon. It opens to display a Trinity Rose pendant on a rose-hued jewelry card.
“The rose is a fabulous pop of color against the black and white patterned background and sets off the pendant beautifully,” noted Collins. “I wanted to make the presentation as special as the Trinity Rose pendant."
Villain Accessories has been available nationally and wholesale for several years. Still, Collins finds the Academy Awards gifting a bit surreal. Knowing her designs will reach some of the world’s most talented actors and actresses she admits is a bit mind-blowing. “I hope that my pieces bring their new owners much joy.”
Villain Accessories’ “Drop Bracelet” was recently selected by show wardrobe stylist Leigh Leverett for use on The CW Network’s “The Vampire Diaries.”
