Are you tuning in for tonight’s American Idol finale? Yes, it’s Simon’s last week on the show, but we’re more concerned with this news: a Bay Area designer’s work will be hitting the red carpet and the stage.
East Bay designer Marrin Costello got in touch to say three of her high-drama, custom-designed pieces will be making their small-screen debut tonight courtesy of 7th season contestant Brooke White. So how did the local designer get her work on the singer?
“I know her stylist, Amanda Jones, from back home (Alameda, California). She ‘pulled’ a few pieces of my jewelry a few weeks ago, and Brooke liked them,” says Costello, who makes each piece by hand using materials from costume jewelry supplies to semi-precious stones and metals.
And while Costello’s jewelry may be star-worthy, her prices are not. Pieces start at an affordable $20.
To catch a glimpse, Costello suggests tuning in to the pre-show countdown on the TV Guide Channel at 7 p.m.
