Fresh Spring Jewels from Vivienne Westwood!

I can't wait to see this one on the Red Carpet -

It is that time of year - new jewelry collections are being promoted, but none as dramatic as the new line of jewelry that brings together three heavy hitters!!!

The Palladium Alliance International and world renown fashion designer Vivienne Westwood have teamed up for the Westwood designed "Get a Life" palladium jewelry collection...and Christina Hendricks of Mad Men fame has been announced as the "face" of the campaign!

An EXCLUSIVE for People Magazine's "Style Watch" quotes the Designer (and her hubby) and the actress:

 “I admire that Vivienne uses her designs to inspire change,” Hendricks, a lifelong Westwood fan, says of the line, which features symbols of hope including trees, acorns and hearts. “As Palladium is a naturally white metal, the pieces really sparkle under the lights,” she continues. “I cannot wait to wear them on the red carpet!” 
And the feeling is mutual, with Westwood proffering, “Christina is the embodiment of beauty and we were delighted to have been able to involve her with this new jewelry collection.” 
Westwood’s husband and collaborator, Andreas Kronthaler, agrees. “She’s got something, this American sweetheart beauty … you’d do anything to go out with her,” he told PEOPLE at the line’s recent launch party in London. “She’s magnificent — a bit like Marilyn Monroe. In front of the camera there’s something very sensual.”

According to the Style 360 Blog by Jennifer Heebner at JCK Magazine:

The bespoke pieces, which include a tiara, include elements inspired by the need to “act, affect, preserve and allow our environment to flourish,” according to press materials. Designs from the collection are inspired by nature (think acorns) and symbols of paganism like the oak tree, which represent “strength, power and hope for change to make the environment better for the future,” as well as Gaia or Mother Earth.

The collection will be available in Vivienne Westwood boutiques in London and L.A. in March 2011. Prices for the retail collection range from $445 to $900; the couture collection is made to order and prices are available upon request.
