Blavk Jewelry exists as an exploration of sacred adornment, specifically focusing on its capacity to provide protection and a sense of control for Black people. I am most interested in the overlap of adornment and armor, jewelry as literal and physical protection. My practice focuses on the creation of symbols along with utilizing natural minerals and gemstones to continue the tradition of adorning one’s body with symbols for safety and power.
