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

Mark……. the only idiot here is you.

What sort of idiot opens a news link, reads it and then leaves an idiotic comment for two people he does not even like?!

I dislike Britney Spears. So I avoid any news links or celebrity gossip to do with her. So I suggest you do the same for AJ & BP. It will make you less bitter as a human being and less likely to look like a fool. Then we can all read the positive comments in peace.

This collection is gorgeous. Sadly Asprey is way beyond my price range, but I am sure someone will bring out a similar design.

It is fantastic (as per normal with this couple) that the proceeds are going to charity. Most other celebrities design something and then keep the proceeds for themselves.

I am not fond of snakes in real like (eek), although they beautiful creatures.

But I love the mythical ancient protective aspects surrounding them.

Dreaming of snakes may be scary but it is a very powerful dream full of life changing connotations

The collection looks great, plus has real meaning, as well. Hope it has great success.

I notice that negative comments keep being deleted? Is PEOPLE sensoring because Brangelina gives them the big stories? Wow……

I’m really tired of the magnificent stories about brangelina

I am not a big snack fan, but these are actually really pretty. Honestly I don’t think this has anything to do with Brad. This is more Angelina’s style, I like it!

Joy on

ha ha ha I meant to say “snake fan”. LOL!

Their beautiful snake line is way out of my price range….perhaps something with a worm?

Interesting how negative comments are removed. Let me repeat again….this is another pathetic attempt on the part of two immoral fruitcakes to bolster their fragmented egos. More scary how the public eats it up.

There they go doing stuff for others again! Love them for that! I have a huge fear of snakes….but i would buy one of each if i could. Wish they were a bit more affordable though. That way i can support my 2 favorite actors and their great cause all at the same time! You know, kill 2 snakes with one stone, lol…
