Celebrate Juneteenth all year long with a custom black onyx bracelet from our limited Juneteenth Collection. Each bracelet is inspired by the Pan-African flag in rich hues of green quartz, red howlite and black onyx. Our Juneteenth 2021 bracelet is made with 10mm matte black onyx, red howlite, and green quartz.
This collection is not only for black and brown people- anyone of any background is invited to stand in support of your brothers and sisters in our continued quest for freedom, justice and equality in America and around the world.
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” -Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
So much has been gained over the decades, yet so much has been lost. As friends and customers from around the world email/zoom/message me with news of earthquakes, landslides, volcanoes, civil unrest and uncertainty concerning the future, it becomes more imperative to live each day in gratitude, in love and in a spirit of hope for a positive future for ourselves and for the world.
Where do we go from here? What is the future of planet Earth? I have no answer for these queries, but I do know that I will do my small part in creating a more positive future for myself and for our planet. How about you?
*Charity Collection* $10 from the sale of each bracelet will donated to the National Museum of African American History and Culture.

Black Onyx: Because onyx is such a powerful stone, we use it in many of our collections. Onyx jewelry provides the strength to endure physically and mentally stressful situations. It is believed to heal old injuries and release grief and sorrow. Onyx promotes vigor, steadfastness and stamina. It alleviates fears and helps guide wise decision making. Onyx balances yin and yang energies within the body.
