ALBANY, N.Y., Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ — Having already conquered the worlds of music and television, Britain’s 8-year-old singing superstar, Connie Talbot, is now entering the world of jewelry design! Recently named Child Ambassador for the 2009 Marine Toys for Tots campaign, dedicating herself to fundraising for this wonderful organization through the sale of her Holiday Magic CD, this charming, talented young lady now announces the launch of ConnieGirl Jewelry. In conjunction with the New Jersey-based Jubili Beads & Yarns®, ConnieGirlJewelry.com debuts with a set of lovely pieces designed by Connie herself.
The bracelet Connie designed for the US Marines’ Toys for Tots annual campaign features their unmistakable three-car train logo, designed by Walt Disney in 1948. Connie is also introducing a line of choker necklaces and bracelets dedicated to raising awareness of the most common types of cancer. Ten percent of the profits from the sale of each and every bracelet of these two special lines will be donated to the Toys for Tots campaign, as well as several cancer research organizations. Another impressive ConnieGirl design to be premiered is her “Devotion” necklace–by wearing one, fans can walk with their favorite singer in heartfelt devotion this coming holiday season, and beyond. “The Singing Stone” is a stylish, eye-catching necklace featuring a musical note pendant and amber stone chips.
“We are thrilled to be working with Connie,” says Judy Weinstein, president of Jubili Beads & Yarns®. “We have enjoyed bringing her colorful, chic, fun, timeless and creative ideas to life. As jewelry designers, we at Jubili Beads & Yarns® are also committed to helping fund breast cancer research and public awareness. With Connie so committed to helping the Toys for Tots program, we saw early on that our partnership in this joint jewelry effort was the perfect match. By wearing Connie’s Toys for Tots and Cancer Awareness designs, her fans will be helping Connie extend the many ways in which she so generously helps others.”
The ConnieGirl Toys for Tots bracelets will be available in different sizes to comfortably fit wrists of both children and adults, with “stretchy” bracelets for the youngest children and chain extensions on the adult sizes. Each bracelet is comprised of two lead-free pewter charms–featuring the Toys for Tots logo and the ConnieGirl logo–which is found on all the jewelry to tell you it’s an authentic ConnieGirl Jewelry design. Czech glass beads (round/oval and stars), white miracle beads, silver spacers and silver plated “findings” (clasp, extender chain, etc.), finish the Toys for Tots bracelets in style. All of the different ConnieGirl jewelry designs are perfect for everyday wear, affordable and eye-catching.
“I hope everyone has as much fun wearing it as I did designing it,” says Miss Talbot of the Toys for Tots bracelet. “And don’t forget we are helping other people, too.”
The launch of ConnieGirl Jewelry, which can be purchased online at http://www.conniegirljewelry.com, is the latest development in the busy life of the young vocalist who first came to attention as a contestant two years ago on the Simon Cowell-hosted Britain’s Got Talent. In addition to the launch of ConnieGirl Jewelry, Connie will be featured in her own one-hour Holiday Magic TV special. Produced by WVIA, the PBS affiliate in northeastern Pennsylvania, this will be the first United States television special starring Connie. The high-definition special will be available to all PBS stations for broadcast during the holiday season. Holiday Magic will include all of the songs from the singer’s upcoming Connie Talbot Holiday Magic CD.
