You may have seen her several years ago on the Jamie Foxx Show, NYPD Blue, and more recently on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and The Real. She has built a successful career as an actress, an entrepreneur with her own production company, and thrives as a philanthropist.
Now Garcelle Beauvais is ready to enter the fashion world as she has recently launched her very own jewelry line.
The reality TV star and talk show host has just introduced Garcelle x Roni Blanshay. She is offering earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings with her collection. The entrepreneur stays busy with her production company Beauvais Wilson Productions, as an author, and in her work helping women and girls through Step Up Women’s Network.
BLACK ENTERPRISE was given an opportunity to speak with Beauvais about her new jewelry line, her upcoming book, and what advice she’d give to someone looking to have a successful career.
What motivated you to become an entrepreneur with Beauvais Wilson Productions and, more recently, your jewelry line, Garcelle x Roni Blanshay?
I’ve always been someone that likes to “wear a lot of hats.” I am an artist at heart, and therefore anything that has to do with art inspires me. Collaborating with Roni Blanshay for my first fashion endeavor was so exciting! I combined my love of fashion and jewelry with my entrepreneurial drive to create something amazing for women all over! I also love telling stories, especially ones that are positively inspiring and moving, so starting my production company with my producing partner, Lisa L. Wilson, was a no-brainer!
What inspired you to start the Garcelle x Roni Blanshay, collection and what future plans do you have for the line?
I was a fan of the RB brand for many years, and after a few conversations with Roni, I knew that when the opportunity to create a line with them came to fruition, I had to jump at the chance! We were able to merge many parts of me with some sparkle to give a variety of accessories for every modern, chic woman. What’s to come? More glitz and glam, of course!
