Dianne Quarles Jewelry
Collection: She's One Of A Kind
I began sculpting faces of Black women in my jewelry because I wanted to see women like me in jewelry. When I work on each woman, her strength and personality begins to emerge from the clay. She talks to me, whispers in my ear or speaks in my dreams and tells me about her personality and how she wants to be portrayed.
Each one represents strong black women. She may be extraordinary or ordinary, common or uncommon. She may be a warrior or a queen, goddess or mortal. She is the strength of her community, fierce and unrelenting, nurturing and supportive, vigilant and protective all while maintaining beauty and elegance.
As I finish each piece, she lets me know “She is one of a kind.”
