I hardly ever buy jewelry that isn't handmade specifically by a local or independent artist. So whenever I am at festivals, boutiques or small shops I am always on the prowl for a good piece that inspires me. Also, #etsy is my jam for this very reason haha Check out the work of @languageofone who made my new silver and raw amazonite bracelet (from the Renegade Rockers 35th Anniversary in SF back in September) AND my copper citrine earrings by @queendomcultivation (from the PanAfrican Festival in Oakland) I also just want to take a moment to give a shout out to all the artists and creatives who hand-craft their individually unique products and sell their wares for themselves on a small scale. They put a lot of love, care and time into what they do. And with capitalism all around us and mass produced merchandise on lock, I don't think we think enough about the hands that make everything we use, especially when the artist can be so far removed from their work. Laborers of love. Thank you!
