BBC television host Suzi Perry has collaborated with independent jewellery designer Alyssa Smith to create a charity collection inspired by motor sports.
The new range, named the Smith & Perry Motorsports Collection, represents Perry’s first foray into the world of jewellery. She is best known for her coverage of MotoGP and Formula One on the BBC, and for presenting The Gadget Show on Channel 5.
The collection was influenced by social media interactions from fans of both Perry and Smith, who then sat down to create miniature racetrack jewellery, even gaining permission from Silverstone to use their exact track layout for the project.
Proceeds from the Smith & Perry collection will be donated to the Promise Dreams charity, of which Suzi Perry is a patron. So far, their joint efforts have raised over £10,000.
Smith says of the project: “Never in a million years did I expect to have the opportunities I’ve had since knowing Suzi…I am looking forward to making even more children’s dreams come true with this charity collection.”
Perry comments: “I’m delighted to be working with Alyssa, she’s a talented young woman who makes the most incredible jewellery, and I’m so thrilled that Promise Dreams can benefit from this project.”
The collection is comprised of charm bracelets, necklaces, earrings and cufflinks and can be purchased from the Alyssa Smith website, here.
