My future sister-in-law (no pressure on my brother!) bought me a pair of stud earrings for my birthday this past December (Capricorns unite). “I thought you’d like them because they’re studs” (practical, yes) “and because they are from a small Black-owned business.” (YES. QUEEN. Marry this woman immediately before I do, Jack).
Shop Small: Cool Earrings From BR Design Co (A Black-Owned Business)
I love how minimalist these studs are. The navy and gold goes with everything, and they are a good size without being heavy (the polymer clay material helps, plus, they are durable). Earrings: 15, Baby: 0
My exact pair is sold out, but here is a very similar shaped pair (in black and sparkle).
Obviously I had to follow them immediately on Instagram and fell in-love with their playful earrings in all sorts of colors, shapes, and textures.
I miiiight have ordered myself a few pairs as a Valentine’s Day gift (Note: you can justify a gift to yourself any time of the year. August gift? Early Valentine’s Day. March? Belated Valentine’s Day. It’s all about perspective.)
The perfect neutral earring with a twist. Plus, they’re hypoallergenic and nickel-free for the sensitive bebes.
Feel like you’re on a tropical island from the comfort of your couch.
This shade of yellow has been trendy for years and isn’t going anywhere. Low-key obsessed.
I am a sucker for fruit-themed accessories. I don’t think I can resist a papaya print earring.
I love the shape and construction of these earrings.
Allllll the texture.
I adore the fan shape of these earrings and the olive-green is so pretty. They feel fresh. (I have the stud version of these.)
I own these and they are just as pretty in person.
Obviously I have a thing for this print. The hoops are a fun twist.
10 | Arches // Mint Green
All about the arches. I ended up purchasing the peach arches, but the mint green were a close second.
The yellow is lovely plus that texture! They are definitely earrings that make you take a second look.
I don’t have a “bee” connection, but something about these honeycombs are doing it for me!
There’s something about having a piece of handmade jewelry that you can’t just purchase from a big-box store that feels special, as well as the knowledge that you are supporting a small, Black-owned business. It hits differently. One of my intentions this year is to start buying from more BIPOC-owned small businesses — not just during Black History Month. That’s style you can look and feel good about.
Oh hey, Pinners…
