INTERVIEW: Rumel Jewels

F.A.S.A: Many will know you as a professional makeup artist, how did you get into jewelry making and designing.

Rumel: Many know me as a few things: a makeup artist, a trend setter, a music lover, a socialite and overall "creative person" Having graduated in Fashion Womenswear and then getting into makeup soon straight after by choice, it was inevitable I would go back into designing at some point, but I would have never thought it would have been jewellery.
It was a makeup job with Natalie 'The Floacist' (Floetry) that got me back into the designing flow of things, as I was asked to design and make Goddess themed pieces for her 'Let Me' music video from her first solo album 'Floetic Soul' and that's how Rumel Jewels came about.

ARTIST: Wangechi Mutu

As an art form I have always loved collages and wished that I could create something just as beautiful as the work by Kenyan artist Wangechi Mutu. Kenyan born Wangechi Mutu now lives and works in Brooklyn, New York she had trained as both a sculptor and anthropologist before exploring the art form of collages.

I am really drawn to her work as she explores the contradictions and sterotype of females and the female form, African cultural identity and socio-economical issues that effect us all.

"Miss Representation":


PLEASE watch this video not only is it an important topic close to my heart but I feel it is something we should all be concerned about. MISS REPRESENTATION is directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, and explores how mainstream media contributes to the under-representation of women in influential positions in America and challenges the media's limiting and often disparaging portrayals of women, which make it difficult for the average girl to see herself as powerful.

This kind of representation happens in so many other area's especially in hip-hop where female rappers I feel are made to portray themselves in a more sexual look to get any type of recognition. Women in the board room who are focused and show leadership may be labeled a bitch where as a guy may be seen as being assertive.

I am really pleased about this movie and would love to see the full version. I am completely down with Jennifer's action for call. We can all make a difference, I know if I ever have daughters I will be sure to provide them with the right balance of information of strong women leaders, thinkers, doers out there, I can’t expect the media to do it …well just not yet any way.
