California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's wife Maria Shriver is launching her very own line of jewellery to raise funds for the state.

The idea for the collection came when Shriver started wearing a charm bracelet featuring a range of California landmarks, such as the GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE, the Hollywood sign and HEARST CASTLE.

The bracelet got so much attention that Shriver decided to sell similar jewellery, with profits going to the CALIFORNIA STATE PROTOCOL FUND.

Los Angeles designer JILL SCHIFF, a friend of Shriver's, created the handmade jewellery.
