Kadena. These special hoop earrings made of transparent acrylic are this collection’s homage to resistance. This Fil-Am History Month and every day, we remember the Black and brown activists who fought in order for us to have the rights that we have today.
If you look closely into the chain, you’ll notice it is actually a chain of arms linked together.
