Video summary: At Accented Glory various materials and concepts inspire the formation of my accessory designs. I allow my imagination and creativity to guide the way. I’ve decided to record a series of video shorts that highlight my creative muses. In this video I share about cowrie shells and their African Roots. Click play to learn more.

No look is complete without great accessories!

Cowrie Shell Fashion Accessories

I launched Accented Glory with my three daughters, Deseré, Cierra, and Gabrielle. Deseré is our public relations guru and social media manager. Cierra writes for our blog, Accessory Diva, and Gabrielle is our design model. As you can see, it's a family affair!

My designs have been featured on Essence, Martha Stewart Shop, Refinery29, Pretty Pretty Black Girl Short Film, and Eve’s Pearls Photo Exhibition.

Most of Accented Glory’s fashion accessory designs incorporate the cowrie (cowry) shell! These shells have African roots and portray a message of respect, honor, and inspiration. Cowrie shells are also believed to be a gift from the goddess of the water Mami Wata; the most celebrated mermaid like deity from Africa. You too can feel like a goddess when you purchase and rock Accented Glory’s accessory designs!
