My jewelry line is "StrengthInUnityBeads" My jewelry serves a higher purpose; it is not necessarily about fashion, though my pieces are trendy, it is more about representing who you are. My jewelry designs are based from Pan-Afrikan ideologies. My pieces represent unity amongst all black people of the African diaspora by "Showing Our True Colors." My hope is that black people wear their colors proudly, creating a heightened sense of nationalism, pride, distinction, and most importantly solidarity amongst black people. Pan-Afrikanism is based on the belief that unity is vital to economic, social, and political progress.

Red represents the blood our people shed.
Black represents our rich melanated skin and the people we fight for.
Green represents the beautiful land of Africa; in which we all come from.
