When I started working on my collection late 2019 I was inspired by African Masks and what they represented to me, but then COVID 19 struck and the death of Breonna Taylor and all the other black lives happened and this collection took on an entire new meaning for me.
IBOJU in the Yoruba language means face covering/Mask. I chose to use a broken mask for this collection for a number of reasons;
50% of the profits from the sale of our IBOJU earrings will go to the non profit organisation "EMPOWER" . Empower was co- founded by an amazing young lady that babysits my kiddos.
Empower is a scholarship fund created by students for students. https://www.empowercmr.com/
