👁"THIRD EYE"👁 Growing up, my mother was a bell collector. She had a whole display case with various bells. Different sizes and styles. Later in my research, I learned the significant meaning and rituals associated with bells through-out different spiritual practices and cultures. From very early times, there has been a link between bells and water spirits. Bells have been used to celebrate, communicate and call on folks to pray. Bells have been used to keep evil spirits away. Bells are sacred. These statement earrings honor the sacred meaning of bells and is my homage to my mom as well who loved bells and peacocks. I used a peacock repurposed charm as a third eye, to stay open, channel beauty, a reminder that those who pass still keep watch. Small brass bells to remember we are in constant communication with energy. Celebrate life. hand painted vintage remix. These beauties are so vibrant! Long! 8 inches.

"ANGELITOS" "I've got angels all around me they keep me surrounded" Growing up, figuras and pictures of angels and cherubs were in homes through out. A reminder of divine presence, guidance and protection. Also a reminder of those in our families who were no longer here physically, but always here in spirit. What I noticed is most angels were cherub & young. Perhaps also a reminder of innocence, pure energy and remembering to keep it light.✨ These earrings are beautiful, small recycled hoops, vintage cherub brass casting, upcycled tassles, gold discs, angel charms. Long! 8 inch statement earrings. ONE OF A KIND. 🌺🌺🌺Link in Bio🌺🌺🌺 #madredeperladesigns #oneofakind #figurasandamulets #figuras #amulets #charms #talisman #vintage #cherubs #angels #vintagecharms #spiritualjewelry #statementjewelry #coins #tassles #statementearrings #recycledmaterials #upcycle #repurposed #remixed #caribeña #PuertoRicanartist #handmadejewelry #Chicagomade #forthecultura

Our culture is beautiful and unique and poppin'. Many times we grow up being taught to distance ourself from certain aspects. To look at white celebrity and style and beauty as if it is better. I grew up loving Marilyn Monroe (I mean she's also a GEMINI like me, but I digress) and knew nothing about the dopeness of Rita Moreno until I intentionally looked for my own cultural icons. I was an avid reader of white authored novels and it wasn't until late High School that I discovered we (Latinx, Caribbean) wrote books too! I finally saw myself. It was mind blowing to me as a young girl. This is deliberate. A way to make us feel inferior. A way to make us want to be something more than ourselves, desire a proximity to whiteness because it is instilled in us since birth to be "superior." It's why practically everyone is white on TV shows & movies, even on Spanish Speaking stations!! It's so deliberate and insidious. So we grow up wanting to distance ourselves from our culture, our customs, our neighborhoods, our ancestors. Because we have been devalued and in that devaluation we try and cling to something we are not in order to be something we are shown is more. Our culture is so beautiful, our people are beautiful, so genius, so vibrant, so talented, so original. It's why I want to highlight & celebrate it/us as much as possible. To remind us, all we gotta do is look in the mirror if we want inspiration. We are more than enough. We are dope af. Vaya. #madredeperladesigns #nayirahwaheed #forthecultura

Been defining English language Latinx media culture for a minuto. Thank you for finally catching up. I appreciate your love of my culture. #2005 #fbf #fuegomagazine #latinxmedia #michellerodriguez #journalism #jesustalks #latinos #tegocalderon #themarsvolta #latinopopculture #ForTheCultura #aheadofitstime
Sometimes you don’t feel like you’re making a change. Sometimes you feel as if everyone’s posing as a content creator. Sometimes you feel like your years as a Latinx media type has been for naught. Then, sometimes, you remember you learned from the best. #JuanGonzalez , in particular who was my old college professor—a founding member of #TheYoungLords , a group of men and women who were mainly children of migrants from rural Puerto Rico and used revolutionary tactics to help our community. A good chunk went on to lead storied careers in journalism, before it became clickbait. In my work, interviews or playlists, I try to contribute to our gente. I try to continue a legacy of revolution through the one thing they tried to strip away from us—our culture. Because no one could’ve foreseen the power and might of kids of immigrants. Sometimes, I feel like I’m making some headway. #latinx #latinxmedia #nyc #proudandpowerfulindividualz #jesustalks #content #journalists #journalism #felipeluciano #ForTheCultura #culture #latinos #media #TIDAL #TIDALLatin

With the state of our country in our faces more than ever through the media, and our gov. affecting immigrats and people of color, I have hope for us and the next generation and what they stand for.

I assure you I said something smart. 🤓 I had the pleasure of speaking to a great group of teenagers, who are part of a Latinx Youth Leadership program. I hope my experience as a product of immigrants from the ‘hood with a passion for writing and culture inspired them at least a little bit. Thank you to my college buddy (CUNY!)

What I love most about #ValentinesDay is that in #Spanish it's called El Día del Amor y la Amistad, the day of #love and #friendship ! Feeling supremely blessed to get to spend every day with some of the most awesome people who are so smart and amazing as teammates, and they also make awesome friends :) We had a super fun #Valenteam 's lunch this week and @elchicanodesigner surprised us bringing @MillennialLoteria for us to play!! Sooo fun! Epic play on the original #Loteria game but reimagined for #Latino #millennials ! These cards are hilarious! #eltinder #elstudentdebt #eltroll haha! We played with the fair trade organic non-GMO #coffee beans it comes with of course, no old school pinto beans like the ones we grew up with haha! Thank you so much for sharing this with us, Ruben! Friends, go follow the @millennialloteria account and comment on his posts to beg him to make more so we can order more sets! He's completely sold out! Every #Latino #home needs this! So does anyone who plays #fortheculture ;) but #forthecultura is even more fun!! Team, y'all made this HILARIOUS and so much fun! The instructions said to take a #selfie first, then an influencer reads the cards out, and the winner yells #YASSS . Naturally I took the selfie and was the card reader, and @samaniego_6 won!!! 💥😎🎉👏🏽🔥
Thank you for guarding the keys, St… Guy. #mexican #forthecultura
