The Bold and the Beautiful- Christina Hendricks for Vivienne Westwood’s Palladium Jewelry Collection, ‘Get a Life’

Christina Hendricks
"Hendricks can be seen modeling the Palladium chain necklace with heart pendant and Gaia inscription. The heart pendant represents hope - hope that it is not too late to affect the future of our environment for the sake of generations to come. The heart has also and has long been recognized across many cultures as an icon of charity, joy and compassion."

Fierce, stunning, and impossibly talented, Christina Hendricks has been turning heads since she first stole the scene in Mad Men. Naturally, the fiery redhead is the perfect siren to model Vivienne Westwood’s stunning Palladium jewelry Collection, called ‘Get a Life’

Featured in the collection are both couture and retail pieces delicately crafted from Palladium – a naturally white precious metal belonging to the platinum family that maintains its beautiful color and shape over time. Dame Westwood’s bespoke pieces include elements inspired by the need to act, affect, preserve and allow our environment to flourish. Designs from the collection are inspired by nature and from symbols of paganism – the acorn, the oak tree and the heart all feature prominently to represent strength, power and hope for change to make the environment better for the future.

"The Oak Leaf Tiara made with Palladium showcases expertly created oak leaves and acorns. The oak tree is known as the King of the Forest, one of the largest and most hard trees in the sacred woodland. Revered by many cultures, the oak projects a dignity unique to its own nature. As a worshiped representation of Gaia, Mother Earth, the Palladium tiara of entwined oak leaves signifies the need to respect our environment and illustrates the oak tree as King of the Forest."

I am absolutely in awe of Christina, and in love with this collection. How about you?

The Vivienne Westwood ‘Get a Life’ Palladium Jewelry Collection will be available in Vivienne Westwood boutiques in London and LA in March 2011. Prices for the retail collection range from $445.00-$900.00, and the couture collection is made to order.
