Country star Jennifer Nettles is collaborating with American West Jewelry to debut a collection on QVC July 5, according to the network. And showing our ignorance of the Nashville sound, we have never heard of her!
The jewelry line will offer designs that combine sterling silver, brass, leather and suede with gemstones. Nettles will be on the air presenting the collection and sharing her inspirations for the design of the pieces.
“We are thrilled for the debut of this unique collaboration featuring American West Jewelry and Jennifer Nettles,” QVC Senior Vice President of Merchandising Ken O’Brien said in a canned statement. “Jennifer is such a powerful voice in the entertainment world and we are looking forward to offering both country music fans and jewelry lovers alike the chance to experience the collection.”
The QVC press release says:
The Grammy, CMA and ACM award-winning singer and songwriter infuses her personal style throughout the line. The eclectic and bohemian-chic pieces include necklaces, rings, bracelets and earrings which range in price from approximately $50 to $349.
“I love reaching people through my music, but I can’t tell you how excited I am to be able to share my passion for jewelry with the QVC audience,” Nettles said in her canned statement. “I enjoy accessorizing my own wardrobe on a daily basis and I cannot wait for people to experience all of the fun this line has to offer.”
We like her “Believe” pendant.
Here’s her bio from QVC’s website:
