on the cover of the 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue!


Hollywood, CA – February 14, 2012 – As the world’s most widely seen magazine hits newsstands today, people are going to be asking 3 big questions: 1) Wow, who is Kate Upton? 2) Who made the suit is she almost not wearing? 3) And, where can I get that necklace she’s rocking?

“Kate looks absolutely stunning,” said the veteran jewelry & accessories designer Sonya Ooten from her studio in Silver Lake, California, “My jewelry has been featured in the swimsuit issue before, but this is my first time on the cover!  I’m really honored and excited to have my design featured on the cover of this incredible issue and on such a beautiful girl!” 

The 14K Collage Necklace is from Ooten’s latest collection, “I was playing with the idea of very luxe charms on a simple gold chain. The idea is fun & frivolous yet sexy and sophisticated-- there’s more than meets the eye.”  Ooten fashioned the featured necklace on a 14K gold chain with three floating elements-- a Pave´ Diamond Star (to help you reach for your dreams,) a Giant South Sea Pearl (for passion & love) and a Pyrite Faceted Rondelle (to keep you grounded in success).   The necklace is a limited edition Collage Necklace from Sonya Ooten and retails for $2,285-- only 40 necklaces will be made with these elements as seen on the cover.  It is currently available only via Sonya Ooten’s website, www.sonyaooten.com.
