What do we know for certain about Langston Hughes? He was a prolific writer of the Harlem Renaissance. That his poem "Harlem" is read by almost every American school child. But what about his life? Hughes kept us all at a distance wandering the world learning himself. This bracelet constructed with wood and tiger iron, presents just that: what we see and what we cannot fathom.

This collection pays homage to trailblazing Black literary giants and celebrates Black History Month. I dedicate this style to my dear friend, Michael, who lost his life at the beginning of the COVID crisis. He was moved by the words of the poem “Mother to Son” and he felt particularly connected to it because his mother taught him it when he was younger. 10% of the sale of each bag is being donated to the United Negro College Fund.
