SOUL BROTHER

"Common was the first male to commission metal cuffs from LWJ.  
At the time he had a strong affinity for bold sterling silver pieces with cabochon stones. He gave me free reign to design a pair of cuffs that would be his signature pieces for all occasions. Common felt powerful and protected wearing LWJ."

“This is my first Honey 

magazine editorial.

At the time I was selling on the street in Soho and the stylist, Carlene Ferguson reached out asking to pull some pieces; my designs actually ended up being featured on three pages. It felt exciting to see my work in print because I’ve had a love for fashion magazines since I was fourteen years old."

CAMERA READY

“Russell Simmons had a magazine called One World. 

Raquel Cepeda, the editor-in-chief, was a dear friend and supporter of my work. They were working on a story highlighting 27 artists under 27 and decided to include me. This was my first magazine feature as a solo subject. I'm a behind-the-scenes person and am shy in front of the camera at times. This opportunity challenged me to embrace being comfortable in front of the camera. I was covered in dozens of my pieces which was cool."
