Last month we announced our exciting partnership with singer/songwriter Celleste. Her music is featured in many of our product videos on Ice and now we’re thrilled to launch Celleste’s selection of Vintage Glam Jewelry.
Celleste chose her favorite jewelry pieces from Ice and I had a chance to chat with her about her selections.
Laura: What was the inspiration behind the pieces of jewelry in your collection?
Celleste: I chose these particular pieces because they represent me the best. I like vintage and natural looking jewelry in an array of colors set in leather and metal, but at the same time having a glamorous accent. I also like pieces which are more sophisticated, chic and feminine, as long as they have some sort of edge.
L: How would you describe your personal style?
C: I always mix vintage and modern just like my music which I like to call “Modern Classic Rock”. I really like a combination of fresh, new looks, but always with an old-school feeling.
L: We love the vintage look of some of the pieces you chose – how do you combine these pieces with a modern outfit?
C: You just dare to do it. Most of the pieces I picked can be worn with casual clothes like jeans or dressier outfits just the same. I think it’s not about what you wear the pieces with but how you wear them. Be confident and feel good about yourself, and I promise anything will work!
L: Being a performer, what kind of jewelry do you usually wear on stage?
C: On stage I go for more basic and light pieces since I’m very energetic. I’ve learned the hard way that jewelry can injure. Not the most practical thing when you’re jumping up and down. ; ) So I usually go more for bracelets like cuffs. I’m so used to wearing a few of them on each arm that I feel naked on stage if I don’t have them on. As for earrings, they have to be delicate and light, so I always wear studs.
L: Is there a piece from the collection that you would wear every day?
C: Absolutely! The first thing on my list would be the crystal smiley face leather bracelet. That bracelet was screaming my name. It’s totally ME! And it’s comfortable enough for me to have on all the time, on and off stage.
L: Which are your favorite pieces from this collection?
C: That’s a really tough one! I LOVE everything I chose, but I absolutely ADORE the smiley collection, especially the bracelet… I fell in love with it the second I saw it! It has a rock feel due to the leather, but still remains feminine.The whole collection is so cute and just makes me smile . Plus, all the pieces are very wearable both on and off stage.
Smokey Quartz ring (pictured right) – This ring really feels like an antique, I find it has lots of character, and really makes a statement. I love the craftsmanship and design, and especially the dark color. This is great when I don’t want too much glitter but still want to feel like a rock star. : )
Stainless Steel Flower bracelet – Daisies have always been my favorite flower, so I had to have this bracelet in the collection! This piece is just plain fun. It’s bright, colorful and has a great feel… can you say “groovy baby”? : )
Black diamond studs – When it comes to earrings, I tend to keep it really simple. These studs are perfect for me – clean and straight to the point. I love the fact that black goes with everything, whether chic or casual. Like the Smokey ring, when I don’t feel like shining, these make a subtle and classy statement. And let’s not forget ladies, they’re still diamonds.
On a path to international stardom, the entrepreneurial and multi-talented Celleste divides her time between being an artist, and running her own record label, Mighty Music. The singer/songwriter recently released her debut album “Ready To Fly”, a blend of rock, folk, blues, country and pop, that she likes to call “Modern Classic Rock”.
“I use jewelry as another way of expressing my personality, on and off the stage. It has to be fun, edgy, casual and vintage… but always with a glamourous touch.”
