Angelina Jolie And Brad Pitt's New Role: Jewelry Designers

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have put their creative minds to something new — elegant serpent-themed jewelry! The power couple has teamed with a top British jeweler Asprey to come up with a series of designs for everything from earrings, pendants, bangles, rings to a silver spoon and egg cup. And, like so much of their life away from the cameras, the collection will benefit others. All the net proceeds will go to the Education Partnership for Children of Conflict, to which the couple has already donated $1 million via the Jolie-Pitt Foundation in June 2008. For Jolie, 34, the inspiration for the collection was an obvious one. While she was expecting Shiloh in 2006, she was given a special gift — a protective snake ring. It was seen as a protector for mother and unborn child, and Jolie has come to view the motif as something of a family guardian. “Since then she has seen the snake symbol as a protective talisman for her family,” a source at Asprey tells PEOPLE. The series started out as something for children — 16-month-old Vivienne has already been photographed wearing bangles with the snake motifs– but has developed into the limited edition “Protector Collection” of high end jewelry and other luxuries, which does still include children’s items like a tooth box and silver egg cup. The collection becomes available tomorrow, November 17. –Simon Perry

you people are reading WAY too much into the snake factor. its as simple as they like snakes and beleive they are “protective”. what they wanna think about the snakes is their deal. The best part about them doing this is that proceeds are going to CHILDREN, not themselves!

What a beautiful collection. Brad and Angelina do everything from the heart, which is what I admire about them both.

surprising…. wonder if they realize that a serpent is a cursed animal, just want to put that around my neck, my wrists, in my mouth, on my ears, But, O’ yea, they like bondage. Nothing like having your ears,mouth,wrists, and neck bound up.Watch who you put in that idol position.

Great call one snake rusty and the other dusty mimics them 2 a t. They r so full of it. But the world has alot of suckers and i dont blame them 4 using them. Ms and mr snake have alot of kids in that family especially themselves. They seem 2 spend so much time pretending and being false and when the media and public backlash becomes 2 much they find a poor or 3rd world for propoganda.

Funny how people who claim to be sick of Jolie and Pitt keep re-visiting articles about them and then take the time to lament and whine about how over-exposed they are. Maybe you whiners should quit Googling them then they wouldn’t be so prominent in the news! I, for one, enjoy how they reach out to the poor and try to make this world a little better. Heck, they’re also gorgeous to look at; esp. AJ! More eye candy for me, baby!!
