Being nominated for an Oscar is the greatest honor for anyone in the film industry and winning the award of course has it’s benefits. But did you know that even if you don’t win, you walk out with a swag bag full of goodies. These bags usually include the latest electronic gadgets, beauty products, even vacations! Totally jealous!
We’re thrilled to announce that at this Sunday’s Academy Awards, these swag bags will include a piece of jewelry from the SNÖ of Sweden Collection! The stars will be able to wear the “Sparkly” bracelet by SNÖ of Sweden which features three strands of mother of pearl and an wooden clasp. I love the the edginess the over-sized clasp give to the bracelet and your outfit. These bracelets are available in three colors at Ice – sparkly tan, white & fuchsia.
One of the first artists we’re working with, Celleste, is a high-voltage singer/songwriter with a rocker edge and a sultry sound.
This Montreal native recently released her debut CD “Ready To Fly”. We’re thrilled to be featuring many of the songs off of her album in our jewelry videos, including her song “Yer goin’ down”. Check it out as the soundtrack for one of our fave SNO of Sweden pieces.
Celleste is a true indie artist with a DIY attitude, starting her own label, Mighty Music, with her producer, Eric Dick. Her music is a blend of rock, folk, blues, country and pop, that she likes to call “Modern Classic Rock”. Celleste explains how she found her sound, “I’d often hear Led Zeppelin blasting in my brother’s room while dad was strumming Chet Atkins tunes in the basement… then I got my hands on [Lenny Kravitz’s] “Are You Gonna Go My Way”, and [Sheryl Crow’s] “Tuesday Night Music Club”. Throw in some CCR, Black Crowes and Janis Joplin, perform it all like Steven Tyler and Madonna, and presto… you know all my secrets.”

Ladies of Ice
Yesterday some of the ladies who work at Ice, including myself received our new orders of jewelry from the SNO of Sweden collection. You should have seen the swarm of women running over to our desks to see what we got. It’s very clear…we’re all obsessed with this new collection. I personally got the Gray Glass Bead Bracelet which is super sparkly and perfect for a night out or in my case I’m going to wear it even with a t-shirt and jeans because I love it that much. I got another sparkly piece, the black glass bead bracelet which will go with anything and best of all you can layer it with other bracelets. Can you tell I like sparkly jewelry?
What’s great about the SNO of Sweden collection is there is something for everyone. One of my co-workers Elissa who has a very classic jewelry style got the seashell pearl bracelet and said “it’s very classic with an edge”. Tammy who is usually a minimalist in the jewelry department went with a long seashell pearl necklace that can also be worn shorter by doubling it. She didn’t waste any time and put it on right away.
I’m also showing off my morganite & diamond rose gold ring in the pic which I cannot stop staring at! (Not part of the SNO of Sweden collection but I still wanted to mention it since I love it)
I cannot contain my excitement for our latest collection of jewelry at Ice… SNÖ of Sweden! I LOVE every piece in this collection and I’m betting that most of you will find something you like too. This line is PERFECT for Fall and with a name like SNÖ how can it not be perfect for Winter too.
It’s designer is Lena Jonsson Näslund who had a vision of making affordable, but unique jewelry that could be worn by women of all ages and backgrounds, using materials provided by nature. Having grown up, surrounded by the breathtaking scenery of northern Sweden, Lena says that being part of nature, the people around her and life itself are her main source of inspiration. Snö is the Swedish word for snow and celebrates the pure, white and crystal clear materials of the north.
The pieces found at Ice use semi-precious stones such as quartz, onyx, clear rock crystal, smoked crystals and seashell pearls in a variety of natural colors and shapes. We have over 20 pieces in the SNÖ of Sweden Collection but here are a couple of my favorites I wanted to share with you.
Seashell Pearl Silver Plated Multifunctional Necklace: As I’ve mentioned, I love long necklaces. These necklaces are gorgeous but what appeals to me even more is that they are multi-functional. You can take them apart to make shorter necklaces or bracelets. Love that! Almost all the SNÖ necklaces can be wrapped around twice for a layered look or have detachable parts.
Talk about a statement piece! This Smokey Quartz bracelet (pictured right) is big, bold and beautiful featuring a stylish wooden clasp. You can wear the bracelet with the clasp showing in the front or in the inside of your wrist for two different looks. Don’t you just love how versatile these pieces are?
