Christina turns designer to fight cancer

Washington: Actress Christina Applegate has co-designed a stylish new pendant necklace with jewelry designer Alex Woo to raise money for her Right Action for Women foundation in honour of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

This piece reminds me so much of the roses I made out of ribbons for my friends and family while in the hospital,” People Magazine quoted her as saying.

“I am so grateful to Alex for creating such a beautiful piece to benefit Right Action for Women.

“Proceeds from the necklace will help women at high risk for breast cancer get the screenings and testing they need to beat this disease,” she said.

The tree and branches within the pendant–offered in both silver (198dollars) and gold (998dollars) –are designed to signify balance, peace, harmony and the curves of a woman.

The seven leaves represent each day of the week, reminding women to live everyday to the fullest.
