Nameplates and Text

Nameplate jewelry has historically been a vehicle for women of color to celebrate and display our pride; flaunting a necklace with names that are unapologetically non-Western or non-white is a form of resistance. Thus far, I’ve used this vehicle as means of reclaiming femme sexuality, destigmatizing kink, displaying regional POC slang, and dismissing an older generation that has screwed us over yet somehow taken to disowning us.
