Beyoncé Knowles might soon be rocking with Rox Minneapolis jewelry by local designer and Fox 9 anchor Robyne Robinson.
Last week, Robinson met with Scott Nylund, design director for Knowles' Beyond Productions. Nylund is a native of Owatonna, Minn. They discussed using some of Robinson's designs in an ad campaign for the high-end House of Deréon line, modeled by Beyoncé and designed by her mother, Tina Knowles.
Robinson brought home sketches and swatches from the collection to inspire her and left behind jewelry for Tina and Beyoncé Knowles to try. "I started shopping immediately after the meeting. This is so super exciting," said Robinson, who was back at the anchor desk on Sunday.
"I love her jewelry. She discovers findings from around the world and incorporates them into beautiful pieces," said Nylund. "She combines unexpected things like lava rocks and precious stones, and she does so in such a way that I personally think that Miss Tina will love."
In April, Robinson will be taking her jewelry to Los Angeles for the first time. She has designed pieces exclusively for Emma Berg's Voltage: Fashion Amplified collection.
