Check out my blurb on this hot news tidbit on local jewelry designer Robyne Robinson for social media gossip blog LOL OMG!:
We had the inside scoop from the local jewelry designer and newscaster herself a few weeks back, but now it's official: Robyne Robinson will be designing custom jewelry for none other than Beyonce! (She made the big announcement today via her facebook account.)
Her line ROX has long had esteem locally for its mix of semi-precious stones and metals in configurations both bold and feminine. Most recently, Robyne was enlisted by l'etoile to create jewelry for Ra'mon-Lawrence Coleman's Spring 2010 line during New York Fashion Week last fall, and this spring she is creating a line for Emma Berg's spring line at Voltage 2010.
City Pages' blog Gimme Noise gave my post a shout out and used it as its source. Thanks, Andrea!
I talked to Robyne on the phone yesterday from her hotel in New York. Look to Vita.mn next week for more details on the partnership.
