Hello Yahoo readers. Once again here is my Hollywood Wrap Up for what’s miscellaneously buzzing about in Tinsel town.
Lets start with a Jewelry Queen! Alana Sands’ ‘Emerson Ryder’ Beautiful Jewelry!
Alana Sands is a truly talented jewelry designer based in Beverly Hills. Her timeless, beautiful, elegant, delicate necklaces and her charm and beaded bracelets are all the rage in Hollywood. Whether you’re a celebrity or a normal 9-5 gal, Alana has pieces that will complement you perfectly. Lovely Alana tells us, “I make what I like to wear, whatever comes naturally to me. I might see an old design and want to recreate it or just free hand draw something out. I make it easy to wear especially for moms. We don’t have time to take on & off our jewelry so I like to make delicate comfortable pieces. My jewelry is crafted with the upmost care. I think that’s also why it’s quickly becoming so popular among Hollywood starlets such as Kim Kardashian, Mikey Cyrus, Minka Kelly, Khloe Kardashian, just to name a few. “
