KNOXVILLE, Tenn., April 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Jewelry Television (JTV) announced the debut of its exclusive Ashley Hoffman for JTV Rock Star Designer Collection as a result of its national competition to discover talented jewelry designers. The national jewelry retailer and broadcast network in partnership with Ashley Hoffman, winner of the 2015 JTV Rock Star Designer competition, will debut the collection on April 8, 2016 at 8 p.m. ET during a special 4-hour Girlfriend Friday show.
Last fall, five talented jewelry designers competed in the JTV Rock Star Designer Competition, the first reality show to air on a home shopping network.

JTV's exclusive Ashley Hoffman for JTV Rock Star Designer Collection draws inspiration from her experience on the show by weaving in different aspects of the various challenges. Rooted in the deep connection between her and her great grandmother's Native American heritage the collection features feathers and turquoise artistry. Additionally, Hoffman plays on the wonder of nature, creating a unique balance between organic and structured designs infused with various metals, textures and vibrant colors.
"Being a part of the first JTV Rock Star Designer and working with JTV has been a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity," said Ashley Hoffman. "It's exciting to see all of the hard work pay off in a jewelry line I'm extremely proud of."
