2 Sisters Handcrafted will be gifted to the biggest names in Country Music backstage at The 46th Annual CMA Awards taking place October 29 – November 1, 2012 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN.
Online PR News – 30-October-2012 – Barrie, Ontario, Canada – 2 Sisters Handcrafted (http://www.2sistershandcrafted.com), in association with The Artisan Group, will participate in the official celebrity gift lounge in honor of the 46th Annual CMA Awards on October 29 – November 1, 2012 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.
2 Sisters Handcrafted's silver on leather Gone Country secret message spinner bracelet will be featured backstage at The Artisan Group's exhibit and gifted to the biggest names in Country Music at The CMA Awards along with over 25 influential members of the media and press.
The owner and designer of 2 Sisters Handcrafted is Colleen Johnson, located in Barrie, Ontario, Canada. The company specializes in hand stamped and personalized sterling and fine silver sentimental jewelry and accessories, with a handcrafted, artisan, vintage inspired appeal.
Colleen loves country music and when this gifting opportunity presented itself, she immediately thought leather and turquoise gemstones needed to be a part of her offering. "For this gifting, I chose the warm natural, neutral toned, premium leather intricately woven in a band and adorned with hourglass shaped turquoise gemstones to go along with my best selling spinning secret message silver focal pieces," explained Johnson. "This unique combination appeals to both men and woman making it an appropriate and luxurious choice for the prestigious CMA gift lounge."
The already busy shop owner had to ramp up production to balance meeting the needs of her loyal clientele and fulfilling the exciting order needed for the Country Music Awards gift lounge. "Everything is done by my two hands," she explains when asked how she managed to get it done on time. From hand stamping each secret message bar to wrapping it in a spinning charm, threading it on the leather bracelet and hand wrapping each turquoise gemstone in sterling wire. She also stamps her own packaging with her custom logo but this time had the help of her husband, who also helped add biography cards and business cards to every package. The experience and buzz surrounding the participation in the CMA gift lounge has been worth the hard work and exposure it has brought to her company.
2 Sisters Handcrafted products have been popular with both the men and women at this years GBK celebrity gifting lounges such as the MTV Movie Awards and the Primetime Emmy Awards. They have also been gifted to celebrities such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Khloe Kardashian, Jenny McCarthy, Christina Hendricks, Nia Peeples and the stylist of the hit TV show The Vampire Diaries.
A new up-and-comer of celebrity gifting, Johnson noted that this type of project is a bit of a roller coaster. “There is a good deal of intense work and then a whole lot of wait and see. I’m always confident that recipients will enjoy 2 Sisters Handcrafted's artisan jewelry even if I don’t hear from them, but I do enjoy it when I get a personal response regarding their pieces, like when I got a hand written thank you note and pictures from Nia Peeples and her daughter enjoying their necklaces or the tweets from Hugh Bonneville and other members of the cast from the TV show Downtown Abbey" who received her pieces at the GBK Emmy Awards gift lounge. "I'm also excited to see new celebrity twitter followers who attended the gifting suits and received my pieces. I hope that means they love what they received!”
