AN entrepreneur has added a jewellery line to her ever-expanding businesses.
Not satisfied with running her own burlesque-themed clothing and shoe line and an entertainment company, Amy Pink has now added jewellery to her ever-bulging portfolio.
The 31-year-old has spent the last few months designing her own jewellery, which she hopes will prove popular with Wearside women as well as help raise money for charity.
Amy, of Barnes, said: “I wanted to create something that was symbolic and would carry a lot of meaning for people wearing them, so a lot of thought has gone into them.
“It’s taken a while to get to now and I’m really pleased with the end result.”
Amy will be launching her jewellery range at Park Lane Cards in Houghton on Saturday. She will unveil her collection alongside a range of specially-branded cherry necklaces and bracelets in aid of St Benedict’s Hospice.
She said: “As well as launching my own jewellery line I wanted to do something that would give back to charity so I will also be selling products I’ve designed for charity.”
Amy’s jewellery comes in a specially made box complete with a survival kit to keep women going.
She said: “It’s unusual because, for example, I’ve designed a pendant with a dagger to protect you from harm, wings to help lighten the load, a heart to remind you that someone loves you and diamonds to remind you we all have the right to shine.”
Over the last few months, Amy has thrown herself behind supporting cancer charities.
Last year, Amy and pals produced a racy 2012 calendar inspired by smash-hit show Calendar Girls, with all funds going to charity.
She has also launched a petition to push down the age of cervical cancer screening. Last month, Amy and her calendar girls went to Byron Place shopping centre in Seaham to encourage people to back the campaign to lower the age women can get tested.
So far, they have collected more than 300 signatures from those supporting their campaign.
