Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LOS ANGELES - May 04, 2017 - Jewelry designer Daria de Koning has been tapped to create an exclusive charm to benefit Children’s Action Network just in time for Mother’s Day. The 18kt gold “Foster Love” pendant was presented to celebrities and C.A.N. supporters Virginia Madsen, Connie Britton and Kim Delaney in gratitude for their work on behalf of permanency for youth in foster care.
“I am so honored to be chosen for this opportunity with Children’s Action Network. Their work is so critical and I hope this pendant offers lasting support,” says Daria. Inspired by their work to raise awareness for placing foster children in forever homes, Daria created the unique design of a heart entwined with the eternity sign in precious metals symbolizing, “I will love you forever.” Hand-crafted and cast in de Koning’s signature style on an 18″ chain, the charm is not only on-trend to layer with other pendants, but is a perfect gift of love, appreciation or just to say “we’re all in this together.”
“Daria’s compassion for our mission and skill as an artisan made her the perfect choice for this partnership and we are so grateful for her generosity. We know the universal message of love combined with the sheer beauty of this charming jewel will make this alliance a huge success!” notes Jennifer Perry, C.A.N.’s President. The pendant is available for purchase in either 18kt gold ($850) or sterling silver ($150) online at both DariadeKoning.com and ChildrensActionNetwork.org with all profits benefiting C.A.N.

The daughter of an artistic Dutch immigrant and a fifth-generation American, Daria spent her childhood summers traveling from her family home in New York City to the Netherlands, the center of modern design.
