FRIDA | Sterling Silver Kinetic Arc Dangle Earrings | Solidarity Collection

Frida Kahlo has always been one of my favorite artists and to celebrate the life and work of Frida I have created these sterling silver kinetic arc dangle earrings. Much symbolism is used, from the long column that represents her spine to the arches that create wings for Frida to fly instead of walk.

Sexism and racism are parallel problems. You can compare them in some ways, but they’re not at all the same. But they’re both symptoms inside the white male power structure. – Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo was born in Mexico City, Mexico (1907). She is recognized as one of Mexico’s greatest artists; however, little is ever mentioned about her rebellious nature and desire to make a change in the world. In her adolescence, she adopted a sort of romantic socialism that was combined with cultural nationalism. Her artwork often dealt with gender roles, abortion, pregnancy, and conception – topics that women did not feel free to address in public.

Mankind owns its destiny, and its destiny is the earth. We are destroying it until we have no destiny. – Frida Kahlo
