FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS WITH MY (CURRENT) ANSWERS



Q: How do you make your jewelry?


I work directly alongside two desktop cnc milling machines that take my jewelry object illustrations and cut them out of various types of sheet metal. After milling, these pieces are all bent, formed and finished by me at my workbench.

Q: Who is your jewelry for?


I make jewelry specific to Black folks called (head)crests. I am resolute in creating things that work solely for us. I also make jewelry/items that I welcome everyone to consider having for theirselves.

Q: What does BLACKMARZIAN mean?


BLACKMARZIAN comes from processing Black tales of dreaming, glitching, worldbuilding and liberating. I wonder: how could a blackness of Mars be originated from our earthly freedom...

Q: What are you inspired by?


I’m motivated by Afrofuturism, Black queer feminism, anarkata, abolition futurity, language, strange outsiders, digital spaces and the repurposing of technology for liberation.
