Erice Reid’s new Yard Girl Jewelry line, which consists of gold and rhodium plated fashion jewelry, is inspired by her twin passions of art and culture, as well as life’s colourful moments. Her signature map of Jamaica necklace and two exquisite earrings are currently available, and her sights are firmly fixed on completing the line of affordable and quality fashion accessories in time for summer.

“I’ve always loved art and culture, specifically the Jamaican culture. My free-time is usually spent painting and creating mixed medium art on canvas. Many of my pieces are abstract or inspired by the African culture. Yard Girl Jewelry is my way of combining these two passions,” stated Reid, who currently resides in the US and teaches high school English.

“The first piece in the jewelry line, our map of Jamaican necklace, was designed in commemoration of Jamaica’s 50th anniversary of Independence. The necklace is available in our national colors – green, black and gold. It is also available in pink, which would suit the woman who is a little less traditional,” she explained.

Rhodium plated enamel necklace accented with a cubic zirconia marking the capital, available in green, yellow, black, or pink enamel. This pendant is available on an eighteen inch rhodium plated chain.

Although the line is inspired by her culture, Reid is hoping that the beauty and simplicity of the pieces will appeal to all women. She revealed that once the line becomes established in a year or two, she plans to tie each collection to a charity or non-profit.

“A percentage of the profits earned would go toward bringing awareness to various social and economic issues in countries within our Diaspora,” stated Reid. For more information on Yard Girl Jewelry, visit www.yardgirljewelry.com.
