Memo 221: Can I be Candid (Art) With You?

Black Designers Rock!

For the rest of the month here on The Werk! Place, I’ll be featuring at least one designer of color in each of my looks. As an African American woman, it’s important for me to highlight and support entrepreneurs, designers, and influencers of color who have been innovators in their fields! If it’s for us, by us and it’s dope, then I support it.

The first feature goes to this Tumbleweed necklace from Candid Art Accessories. Fellow Howard University Alum, Candice Cox, started Candid Art Accessories after being inspired by an affinity for African visual culture, indigenous design vernacular, and cosmic geometry.

Each piece is handcrafted and is created for the fearless fashion enthusiast who desires to make a statement without saying a word. CanDid Art designs are known for their use of various chains, assortment of metals, semi-precious stones and recycled materials.
