She's one of the hottest stars on Days of Our Lives.

But Kristian Alfonso has plenty more to keep her busy - like branching out into the exciting world of celebrity fashion.

According to BuddyTV, the actress has come up with her own clothing line, which also features jewelry, and which she will extensively launch on the Home Shopping Network on July 23-24.

Alfonso, a 43-year old native of Brockton, Mass., is an actress currently in her third stint as Hope Brady on Days of Our Lives.

Her other acting credits include Falcon Crest, MacGyver, Day of Redemption, Whatever Happened to Bobby Earl, Melrose Place, Baywatch and others.

Quite fitting to her character on the long running soap, she has named her clothing line Hope by Kristian Alfonso, and her jewelry line, Hope Faith Miracles, or HFM.

"I wanted the clothing to be something every woman can wear," the Days of Our Lives icon says. "They will take you from a work meeting, to a function at your child's school, to dinner with friends and you'll never have to change once!"

Meanwhile, her jewelry line, which includes earrings and bracelets with her signature fleur-de-lis, is ready for purchase from her online store.

In a previous interview with Soap Opera Weekly, she described how her trademark evolved into her collection.

"For the last 10 years, fans have been asking about my fleur-de-lis. I've gotten letters, e-mails, questions on the street. It all started with my earrings, which I always wear on the show," she said. "Then it was a necklace and bracelets; all my different fleur-de-lis pieces. I finally thought, 'Let's make them available.'"

Aside from her launch on the Home Shopping Network, Alfonso will also be promoting her brand in Ocean City, Maryland, in September, and in Memphis, Tennessee, at the Agricenter International on October 4-5.

Days of Our Lives Quotes

Lucas, I raised you to be a better liar than that.


Deimos: I believe that the younger generation in this family have been handed everything on a silver platter, and they don't appreciate it.
Maggie: By younger generation, you must mean Sonny.
Deimos: All right, fine. Let's start with Sonny. I'm trying to work with him, Maggie. I've just given him a very important position in the company and instead of being grateful for the opportunity, he's being an oversensitive, temperamental pain in my neck. But at least he's still here. Brady, on the other hand, he's taken off, abandoned the family, Titan. He's left me all alone to deal with the Hernandez family on my own.
Maggie: Well, there's an easy solution to the Dimera and the Hernandez families. Just bow out.
Deimos: I do that and I lose face.
Maggie: With whom?
Deimos: With everyone. Except Nicole. She's taken off too.
Maggie: And to think I naively thought that maybe I'd gotten through to you the last time we had a serious conversation. Let me ask you a question. Has doing things your way gotten you anywhere?
