Just a couple of days ago everyone was talking about “Grammy-2017” music awards, during which the most talented and beautiful Beyonce shocked everyone with her incredible show.
The one important thing that we would like to mention once more, is that the singer’s dancers were wearing golden jewelries-rings and Halos created by American-Armenian designer Marianna Harutunian.
NEWS.am STYLE could not miss the opportunity of talking with the talented Armenian jewelry designer. In our interview Marianna speaks about her celebrity collaboration and the long road she passed before reaching the place, where she is now…
-Marianna, you’re now one of the most famous celebrity jewelry designers in the world…I wonder, how you started your career?
-I started making jewelry when I was just 5 years old. My mom always wore these slippers around the house that had beads on them. So when it was time for her to toss them away I would take off the beads make necklaces, bracelets, rings and give them away to friends. I began my company after high school.

And for Beyoncé I made golden halos and rings for her dancers at her 2017 Grammy performance.
-Marianna, famous people usually have high requirements. Is it easy to please a celebrity?
-Most of the time yes. But I do get the occasional ones that can't make up their minds, so I have to make multiple samples for them to choose from.
- Who are you more frequent celebrity clients?
-That would be fashion designer Bob Mackie. When he was designing for
-What about Armenian celebrities? Have you ever collaborated with any of them?
