OSCAR WINNER GOES FROM THE SILVER SCREEN TO STERLING SILVER – Academy Award winner George Chakiris, known internationally for his Golden Globe and an Oscar role as Bernardo in West Side Story, parlays his talent from the Silver Screen to Sterling Silver Jewelry, featuring necklaces, bracelets, earrings, dramatic belts and more. Late last year, Chakiris received what many refer to as the highest honor in Hollywood – His Hand & Foot Prints were placed in cement for all history in connection with the 50th anniversary of classic film West Side Story which premiered at Grauman’s 50 years ago. Living a life with passion for the creative arts drew George quite by chance to jewelry making as a hobby. What began as a diversion became a full time appreciation for design and construction and a new creative outlet, which became The George Chakiris Collections (http://www.georgechakiris.com/). Recently unveiled his latest collection in Japan. The George Chakiris collections are now on display at Tokyo’s prestigious Mitsukoshi Department Store as well as in America online. Among those artists recently seen on red carpets and national interviews such as The Today Show and CNN wearing George’s accessory creations are Morgan Fairchild, Rita Moreno, Tippi Hedren, Carol Channing, Romi Dames, Phyllis Diller, Alison Arngrim, Mary McDonough, Michael Learned and Judy Norton.
Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to the overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine. – Proverbs 3:9-10
