GENDER GEMS: Gender-positivity & the affirmative power of color

GENDER GEMS is my project to empower, affirm, and brighten the visibility of trans and gender-nonconforming folks with my art. I design gender-positive enamel pins with bright colors and empowering imagery! Crystals are the inspiration of my original pronoun pin designs, because they are unique, multi-faceted, and totally natural, just like us. I love to play with bold lines and saturated colors, drawing inspiration from pop art and tattoo art, the traditional rainbows and flags of the queer community, and of course the incredible variety of color in the natural and mineral world.

I start out every project by making something I want to wear for myself, so it's humbling every time I find that other people want to make my art part of their world, too. The hand-painted gem pendants were the original creation I offered for sale, and since then I've branched out into enamel pins, stickers, and original art prints. Since 2018 GENDER GEMS products have been stocked at the following locations:

Citizen Ruth PDX - Portland, OR
Gather Shoppe - Bloomington, IN
Strand Book Store - New York, NY
California Historical Society - San Francisco, CA
Outsider Comics - Seattle, WA
Third Planet - Bellingham, WA
Wonderfair - Lawrence, KS
A Love Bizaare - Los Angeles, CA
Brujitxs del Barrio - San Diego, CA
Housmans Bookshop - London, UK
Agnes & Edie - Wellington, NZ

This work has allowed me to make amazing connections with other people in my community and I'm so grateful for every bit of support - thanks for coming with me for the ride!
