Today is #BlackoutDay2020, a day that people are being encouraged to use their spending power to avoid buying anything except to support black-owned businesses. I’ve made a list of ten black-owned Etsy stores that create beautifully handcrafted jewelry in all different styles. Consider shopping these businesses not only today but in the future. Each of us has power in where we choose to spend our money—let’s use it.
ABAJewels has super modern chokers and jewelry adorned with crystals and chains. Founder Aja describes her work as for the modern day goddess.
Lingua Negra, meaning black tongue in Latin, creates sculptural designs for everyday wear. Each piece is one of a kind, made with unique textures and techniques.
Omi Woods’ pieces focus on heirloom heritage pieces that celebrate connections to Africa. The pieces are made from fair-trade African gold with conflict-free metals.
Hue Shade designs really focus on incorporating color into jewelry. Dee Dee’s jewelry features brightly colored beads, acrylic, and natural materials.
