Amy Poehler Gifted with Original SariBlue Jewelry Creation

As many of you know, I live and run my business outside of Boston.  It is especially exciting to be able to bestow a SariBlue custom creation on the inimitable Amy Poehler who grew up in our own backyard and attended Boston College!  We love hometown girls!  And we love Amy!

As a consummate comedian she has worked in sketch comedy since her days at BC.  She studied her craft at some well known comedic springboards such as Second City, Imrov Olympics and Upright Citizens Brigade in Chicago.  The UCB later moved to New York and became a Comedy Central show for three seasons.  Amy joined SNL after that in 2001.  She is one of only 3 cast members ever to go from featured cast to full cast member in their first year as an SNL player.

Gifting Tyra Banks with a Custom Jewelry Pendant

 

I have had the honor and pleasure of bestowing another celebrity with a custom made piece from SariBlue.  Just like you, I don’t know everything about the recipients of our gifts, but when I have the opportunity to send a Sariblue creation to a celebrity, I explore a bit to be able to customize something very special and significant.  When I delved into the life of Tyra Banks, I found out that she is an incredibly successful, prolific woman with more talents and endeavors than I ever realized.

Her story begins with the typical “ugly duckling turned swan” model tale that we’re all so familiar with. But after that, the typical tale turns drastically different.  She had to fight to be accepted as a black model.  Naomi Campbell tried to have her banned from modeling to keep the competition at bay, but despite opposition, she booked an unprecedented 25 shows at her first Paris Fashion Week and proved she was a force to be reckoned with in the fashion world.  But what you may not know is that she has continued to be a force in many other arenas.
