Cowrie Shells circulated as a medium of exchange in Asia, Africa, Oceania and North America. The cowrie shell, in particular, was the form of currency in West Africa during the transatlantic slave trade. Bangles are special to me because my grandma who was born and raised in Jamaica wore bangles all the time. My fondest memories are of her cooking plantains and rice and peas and hearing her bangles jingle as she stirred the pot. I hope this bangle will bring back memories of loved ones and the Caribbean.

 Aruba Collection

This new collection entitled Aurora is inspired by the Sun, comprising of a series of earrings, bracelets, and traditional Caribbean classics like the Cowrie Shell. Each piece in the collection is named after the Sun using the native Aruba language, Papiamento. Papiamento is a Spanish Creole language with mixtures of Portuguese and Dutch, spoken on the Caribbean islands of Aruba, Bonaire, and Curaçao. Our collection reflects the Sun, Zon (Dutch), Sol (Spanish), Dom (Portuguese) and Soleil (French). 

Each of the cultures listed above have made an impact / influence on the island. Jam and Rico traveled to the South side of Aruba to a national park where we traversed through a narrow path leading to a serene lake tangled with twigs, branches and trees. Our jewelry caught the gaze of the warm Sun while it peeked through the deep green trees and vines. The Sun is what makes the Caribbean so inviting, welcoming, loving  and hot! We wanted to highlight natures number one nurturer the "Sun" while experiencing One Happy Island of Aruba.
