In his jewelry designs for his brand Khiry, Jameel Mohammed challenges Eurocentric notions of luxury and high fashion by employing the principles of Afrofuturism—the intersection of African diaspora culture with technology. “It’s a means of reexamining my own history and culture, and finding beauty with myself and my people,” says Mohammed, who grew up in Chicago and was encouraged by his parents to explore his African ancestral history. He channels these stories and motifs into his sleek, minimal designs, such as these Tiny Adisa Drops Earrings. The word “adisa” originates from the Nigerian language Yoruba and means “one who makes herself clear.” This elongated teardrop culminates in a metal globe, for a glamorous statement for day or evening wear. Made in New York City from polished sterling silver and gold vermeil, the Khiry Tiny Adisa Drops Earrings measure 0.98”l each.
