HSN Partners With World-Renowned Photographer Anne Geddes for Exclusive Launch of New Jewelry Line

Anne Geddes to Create a Line Inspired by her Iconic Images that Embodies the Innocence, Transformation and Creation of New Life and the Individual Spark within Every Child

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Oct. 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Innovative entertainment and lifestyle retailer HSN is thrilled to announce the exclusive launch of Anne Geddes Protect Nurture Love with Anne Geddes making her official premiere on HSN on October 17th.

A champion of women around the world, Anne has partnered with HSN to create a jewelry collection inspired by her iconic photography and artistic designs, reflecting her deeply held belief that all children must be protected, nurtured and loved. Perfect for any woman celebrating the spirit and purity of new life and the intimacy of the mother/child bond.

“Throughout my career, I have strived to capture the beauty, purity and vulnerability of children,” said Geddes. “I have always wanted to translate my inspiration and message into wearable art, and I knew that this partnership with HSN was the perfect opportunity to do so. We’ve created a stunning collection that is both beautiful and meaningful, and I’m excited to share these pieces with those who share this appreciation of motherhood,” she added.

Every piece in the jewelry collection includes a freshwater cultured pearl with a bezel-set diamond. Pearls are the only gemstones in the world with a natural gestation period, representing innocence, transformation and the creation of new life. The bezel-set diamond in the pearl represents the individual spark within each new life. The 18-piece collection will range in price from $89.95 for a beautiful, sterling silver Genesis pendant with two pearls to $399.95 for a limited-edition, sterling silver and 14k gold floral pendant, which includes an autographed copy of Anne’s latest coffee table book entitled “Small World”.

“HSN is honored to be partnering with such an iconic artist to inspire a unique and meaningful jewelry line,” said HSN’s Chief Merchandising Officer, Carmen Bauza. “Anne is an amazing artist and advocate for children, and we are thrilled to be offering her beautiful and thoughtful designs to women everywhere.”

HSN and Anne have partnered with SHR Jewelry Group — a creative full service jewelry company with expertise in brand building, product development and licensing — to bring this unparalleled jewelry collection to life.

Anne will appear on HSN on October 17th and her collection will be available across all of HSN’s platforms, including HSN.com and the HSN mobile app.

Ex-HSN Jewelry Maven Wieck Joins Evine

September 24, 2017

Long-time HSN jewelry vendor Victoria Wieck has already landed at another home shopping network: Evine.

We thank the reader who pointed the news out to us, and we immediately went to Evine.com to confirm it.

Sure enough, there were a little of over a half dozen Wieck gemstone rings posted.

Wieck, who boasts of her high-end Beverly Hills jewelry business, was on HSN for 18 years, as we recall, when out of the blue she said she was beating it.

Vendors make the rounds at the three main home shopping networks — QVC, HSN and Evine — with some even going over to Jewelry TV. It’s like musical chairs.

So for you rabid Wieck fans, match for her on Evine.

Jewelry Vendor Victoria Wieck Exits HSN

June 19, 2017

We suspected as much, but now it’s official: Jewelry vendor Victoria Wieck is gone from HSN after nearly two decades.

Someone, and thanks for that, posted on our blog that Wieck announced that she was doing her last show on the home shopping network, after appearing there for 19 years.

“They are airing her final show right now,” the person wrote. “No explanation given other than this is her last show after 19 years.”

Another one wrote, “I am disappointed to see Victoria Wieck go. She is a class act. I hope she goes to JTV. Love, love, love JTV. I did buy some gorgeous rings on clearance today. Good bye for now, Victoria. Hopefully see you soon!”

Is Big HSN Sale On Victoria Wieck Jewelry A Bad Sign?

May 18, 2017

Is Beverly Hills jewelry designer Victoria Wieck headed for the door at HSN?

A reader pointed out that all of her jewelry, real gemstones and absolute, are on clearance on HSN.com.

She is a lovely lady, but we feel her designs have grown rather stale. Maybe the home shopping network thinks the same thing. Or maybe not.

Wieck certainly has loyal fans who will be disappointed if she exits.

Coffee With HSN’s Heidi Daus In Montclair

May 4, 2017

For those who don’t read our Facebook page, wanted you to know that we ran into HSN jewelry vendor Heidi Daus at the Montclair Quick Chek Wednesday morning when we were getting our coffee.

We knew that she lived in our North Jersey town, but had never seen her.

She was very gracious and lovely, and said she has a TS coming up later this month!

Jewelry Designer Margo Manhattan Moves To HSN From Evine

November 26, 2016

Jewelry-designer-to-the-stars Margo Manhattan for a brief time did a gorgeous collection for Evine.

The pieces were lovely, chunky sterling silver. But it appeared to us to be a one-shot deal.

Manhattan posted on Facebook this week that she was shuttering her store in the Big Apple and going in a new direction — namely south to HSN.

“It’s Official!” the blonde beauty wrote.

“My beloved shop on Madison Ave & 88th street, has brought us into the wonderful world of TV. We are closing the store on December 19th 2016 to jump into a fabulous new direction. Stay tuned! #Blessed HSN.”

Manhattan has designed jewelry that celebs such as Beyonce have worn, in a video and whatnot.

Meanwhile, she’s having a closing sale at her retail store.

Can’t want to see what she brings to HSN next year.

Goodbye QVC Creede Silver Strike Sale

October 6, 2016

QVC is having a big silver jewelry sale today.

Nonetheless, some posters on the home shopping network’s forums have been lamenting the fact that the annual Creede Mine Silver Strike celebration that was a mainstay of the channel in October is no more.

Here’s what one poster had to say. We can’t vouch for her math and dates, but here it is FYI. And she’s pissed.

Two-thousand-sixteen saw the cancellation of California Gold Rush after 28 years, Big Bonanza Silver Day after 27, and Klondike Gold Rush after 28. Lastly, 17 years after being launched as Creede Mine Silver Strike at Midnight, October 2nd, 1999, QVC cancels the long-established jewelry event, wrapping up a combined one hundred years exactly of jewelry events celebrating the landmark mining disoveries that shaped America, and thus, QVC.

Jewelry isn’t QVC’s greatest category any longer, yet there was a time when over a hundred new items – over twenty million dollars-worth would be presented all day October 2nd. This year, not a single hour a silver jewelry is scheduled on Sunday, October 2nd, 2016, yet a full seven hours of Serta will feature yet another bedding or mattress Today’s Special Value.

QVC and the QVC hosts for years told customers that October 2nd was Creede Silver Silver Strike, yet how does QVC show loyalty to those customers in 2016? Not by continuing their decades-long traditions of jewelry events yet with reduced hours to reflect their current inventory, but cancelling them outright without a formal announcement or apology!

How does it make those feel who have a connection to these events, as soon as one ending, anticipating the next a year later?

October 2nd to me is a celebration of Nicholas Creede’s discovery of the last great silver boom of the Old West, and more importantly, the silver event I looked forward to watching for 24-hours every year. If QVC isn’t going to celebrate any longer, I have no choice but to turn QVC off and celebrate on my own. Here’s to 41 days until my celebration of my favorite day of the year, October 2nd, the date of the once great, and now late, Creede Silver Strike.

Since we follow the quarterly earnings of QVC and HSN, and we keep up on brick-and-mortar retail, we know that with this rotten economy jewelry sales have tanked all over. Gold and silver prices have also soared, putting a crimp on the business.

Sometimes it seems like we are the only jewelry lovers who are still opening our wallets to buy bling.

So we do miss QVC’s day-long jewelry extravaganzas.

Don’t know what your thoughts are, but we’d love to hear them.

Fox Biz On Joan Rivers’ Legacy At QVC

September 25, 2016

Two years after the passing of comedian and QVC queen Joan Rivers, her fashion jewelry line on the No. 1 home shopping network appears to be going strong. And you can credit David Dangle for that, her cohort in the collection.

Fox Business recently did a story on Rivers’ legacy at QVC, and dapper Dangle offered his insights to the jewelry he launched with Joan.

http://www.foxbusiness.com/features/2016/09/19/joan-rivers-design-empire-is-no-joke.html

First of all, he is a two-time Emmy winner, which we never knew.

At the time Rivers’ jewelry debuted on QVC, with a bee pin as her signature, she also had a daytime talk show. Everyone was taken off guard when her QVC items became a hit, Dangle told Fox Business.

“The line instantly became a resounding success,” according to Fox Business.

“At that time, there were just four employees and the business was operating out of Rivers’ dressing room at CBS (CBS). With the demand outpacing the supply, Dangle was forced to create a more organized and forward thinking environment.”

The rest is, as they say, history.
