“Jewellery has always flirted with circular shapes, especially for use in making earrings. The most classic models are the slave and creole styles in gold hoops.
If the name brings to the mind the decorative traditions of the women of colour who were brought to the southern Unites States during the slave trade, the latest interpretation is pure freedom. Colored stones, symbolic pendants and multiple spheres. And the evolution goes on.

Apparently being a slave was fashionable. What you didn’t know? Seriously! WTF? Slave Jewelry! Mocking a tragic and shameful time in U. S. history is not something to try to make into a damn fashion style. What the hell is wrong with whoever decided this was a good idea? Mario Epanya be damn glad that Vogue turned down Vogue Africa if this is the shit they come up with. You so don’t need their asses. And anyone who says these people don’t know or realize the seriousness of this, because they are in another country, blah, blah, blah. That’s ludicrous. The folks at Vogue damn well know better than this! Everyone, copy these pictures and the post before Vogue gets a clue, takes it down, and pretends they didn’t move to stupidville. Post it on your blogs, tweet, Facebook, YT. Whatever expose them for their stupidity, before they have a chance to act like nothing happened. Don’t let them forget this crap!.
