Oh, celebrities. Just when you think they couldn't be more privileged, you learn about the goodies they’ll receive (for free!) at the GBK 2012 Primetime Emmys Celebrity Gift Lounge this Friday and Saturday, September 21-22.
“Swag bags,” as their known, contain handcrafted goods created by independent artists working in the United States and internationally.
This year’s goodie bag does not disappoint with handcrafted jewelry, bath and body products, hair accessories, fine art photography, designer stationery, journals, and other items, valued at nearly $1,400.
Founder of The Artisan Group, Valerie Guerrero says, "I'm blown away by the quality of the Primetime Emmys gift bag this year. The contents truly represent the level of handcrafted excellence that is the hallmark of The Artisan Group. Our members put a tremendous amount of thought and creative energy into their products, and that's one reason our gift bags are so popular with celebrities and the press year after year."
One item from the swag bag in particular will mean a lot to animal lovers. Celebrities, members of the press and media, will all collect a Silver Midnight bracelet and necklace, created by <em>Nair & Bjorn</em> proprietor Kimberley A. Spector.
Spector and her husband Ram Nair rescued their terrier mix, Nick, from Bark of Love Animal Rescue. The two donate 5 percent of sales from <em>Nair & Bjorn</em> to the rescue organization.
Spector has provided her jewelry accessories to such celebrities as Sarah Jessica Parker, Tyra Banks, Vanessa Williams, and Allison Sweeney. She’s also currently designing pieces for the ABC Family series <em>Pretty Little Liars.</em>
