I’ve always had a natural affinity for accessories. I love shoes, bags, hats, scarves, belts, etc. more than anyone else I know. But one extra outfit touch has always stood above the rest for me: jewelry. My little T.J. Maxx jewelry organizer is constantly overflowing with statement earrings, dainty gold chains, hoops in every finish, and layering bracelets–and yet, I am always seeing more that I just have to have.
That was definitely the case this week when, as I researched and discovered Black-owned small businesses to support, I came across countless truly amazing jewelry brands—and I knew that I needed to share them with as many people as possible. Not only did I text my friends links to what seems like a million necklaces and DM my sister “just one more pair of earrings” at least 10 times, but I also wanted to round them up for my fellow jewelry-loving Everygirls.
