Bling for All Seasons: UW grad's jewelry line is dedicated to Husky love

Allison Bobrow is a big dreamer who turned a little idea into a magical career. A graduate of the University of Washington, Bobrow wanted something more then just t-shirts and cheap swag showing off her school pride - she wanted something that would last a lifetime.

So, she decided to make jewelry that could be passed down from generation to generation, bringing new meaning to purple and gold. She launched luxury jewelry line ALLISON CLAIRE several years ago. Little did she know the idea was a diamond in the rough!

The hip designer not only produces sweet, sparkly swag for UW (like necklaces, bracelets, earnings, rings and much more), but she also now has license agreements with Gonzaga University, Virginia Tech and recently signed Alabama.

And get this - Bobrow just inked a deal with the Rose Bowl Committee to produce their logo for one of college football's biggest games of the year. And the coolest part about Allison Claire jewelry is that all her pieces are made local, right here in Seattle.
