Kristian Alfonso has other things keeping her busy besides acting on the soap opera Days of Our Lives
. She has come up with her own clothing and jewelry line, which she will extensively launch on the Home Shopping Network on July 23 and 24.
Alfonso, a 43-year old native of Brockton, Massachusetts, is an actress currently playing Hope Brady on Days of Our Lives
. Her other acting credits include Falcon Crest, MacGyver, Day of Redemption, Whatever Happened to Bobby Earl, Melrose Place
, and Baywatch
Quite fitting to her character on the long running soap, she has named her clothing line Hope by Kristian Alfonso
and her jewelry line Hope Faith Miracles
"I wanted the clothing to be something every woman can wear," she says. "They will take you from a work meeting, to a function at your child's school, to dinner with friends and you'll never have to change once!"
Meanwhile, her jewelry line, which includes earrings, and bracelets with her signature fleur-de-lis, is ready for purchase from her online store.
In a previous interview with Soap Opera Weekly, she described how her trademark evolved into her collection. She said, "For the last 10 years, fans have been asking about my fleur-de-lis. I've been getting letters, e-mails, questions on the street. It all started with my earrings, which I always wear on the show. Then it was a necklace and my bracelets; all my different fleur-de-lis pieces. I finally thought, 'Let's make them available.'"
Aside from her launch on the Home Shopping Network, Alfonso will also be promoting her brand in Ocean City, Maryland, in September, and in Memphis, Tennessee, at the Agricenter International on October 4 to 5. She will also be traveling with the Home Shopping Network team to Alexandria, Louisiana in late October.
