Highlighting the history of African American jewelry and how it ties in with the historical experiences with African Americans in the United States.
Since slavery to the present, African Americans use of jewelry is a means of expression, resistance, cultural preservation, and celebration. Here is my overview of the history of African American jewelry and the popularity of hoop earrings.
Hoop earrings are deep-rooted in communities of colour and streetwear culture. Unfortunately, not everyone who wears the style acknowledge its significant cultural past and the people it originated from. The style first dates as far back to the 4th century in Africa. For some they were worn for protection and others a symbol of wealth. The hoop earring has various sizes and can be found all around the world. During slavery, hoop earrings were the only jewels that slaves were allowed to wear. The popularity for hoops arose especially during the 60’s among African-American women. This was the period of the emergence of the Black Power movement. Members of this community decided to embrace their past and origins by sporting a look that proudly displayed markers of their culture and history.
Trending Hoop Earrings
The trend continued into the 70s thanks to disco divas such as Diana Ross. During the 80s they became larger in size taking the nickname door knockers. In early 2000s hoops became thinner and bigger. Popular RNB and pop singers wear them. The opposite trend are huggies which are smaller and cuffing the earlobe.
Fashion is inspired by different cultures, however, the issue arises when some women of colour face discrimination for choosing to wear hoops. Non-POCs who wear this style should do so mindfully and educate others on the meaningful discourse and importance regarding race. Hoops as a stylistic choice worn by women of colour should be respected. Today hoops can suite anyone. Hoops designs are limitless and are are must have of jewelry.
Your strengths can become your weakness if you do not used them. That was the thought that came to my head for Riss Jewels 2024. I wanted to expand my creativity through out the month of January. I decided to create a new piece of jewelry every week for January 2024.
The New Year Create Challenge was necessary for three reasons. The first is me using material that I have never used before to challenge my creativity. To not have a design plan makes the jewelry piece unpredictable. In the beginning of my design career my pieces were unpredictable which help my creativity to flow. Overtime my designs have become more structure and planned. This organized way of design has its benefits but flaws when it comes to having fun.
The second reason for Riss Jewels showcasing a new design every week in January is refusing to allow material to go to waste. There is material that has never been used because of no creative drive to use it until now. The different colors and styles of the gems are inspirational. Who knows what I will create with this new found creative drive.
The last reason for the 2024 January Create Challenge is to express my artistic capabilities and the need for creative freedom. Someone may value the uniqueness of a piece I’ve created. They may want to own the piece for themself or use it in projects of some sort and that is an accomplishment.
The reasons to own my creativity and share my uniqueness with the world has encourage me to start this New Years Create Challenge. I want to bring back the fun while keeping Riss Jewels chic and casual. Every New Year can bring new challenges. Riss Jewels wants you to face your challenges while always looking stylish and fierce.
