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

Wow John, a little angry are we? Could it be that its as simple as, i dont know…. charity? You’re reading way to much into it. Haters do that though. And to think you wasted your time on people you dont like by re-posting it. Pathetic.

The fact that she picked out a snake speaks volumes.

Glad the money will help others.

The snake comes down wraps itself around you, slips into your mind, gives you beauty, intelligence, and steals your soul. Yes I can see how that would be something that would be a protector of children and families. I have been dupped. I thought they were altruistic. I have always told people how they are so caring, and giving. I can no longer admire them, respect them, because now I know who and what they are. There is a clear and precise view now of why they are so loved by people. I am deeply saddened by this news, and I know I do not know them, but I thought that at least one hollywood couple was true and genuine, but I was wrong obviously.

Proceeds going to the education of children of conflict is a nice touch, although just FYI a frog should have been used. Fully Rely On God. FROG not a snake. Someone gave her a snake, if they had given her a cross, or a pentagram would that have been the theme? Seems like not a well thought out talisman. What will be the price of the protection from the snake, because it is not without a price according to all of the mythological legends. Just something to think about.

oops one more thing. It seems like a high price too. :)

Boy, I know they are super rich but they didn’t have to donate the proceeds.. It seems they are super nice and do everything they can to help people…What an inspirational couple.

The snake DOES suit them. The snake is the embodiment of lies and deceit. It is the enemy and the enemy has a name, evil. Read Genesis, the WHOLE book of Genesis. These 2 can do “good works” 24/7 from now until they die and it will not save their souls.

Wow I love the collection!
