These earrings are named after an incredible person, Bessie Coleman, who dreamed of flying from a young age but, as an African-American and Native American woman, she faced discrimination at every turn.
After being blocked from entering American flight school on racial/gender grounds, she obtained sponsorships to completed flight training in France instead – only to once more be prevented from becoming a commercial pilot on her return to the US. Instead, she became a stunt flier performing dangerous mid-air stunts with great success.
She had almost raised enough money to found her own training school for black aviators when she was killed in a plane crash aged just 34 – but she remains the first African-American woman to hold a pilot’s license and inspired a generation of female pilots.
These earrings are perfect to name after Bessie. They are bold and ready to take flight anywhere/ anytime. Adorned with Amethyst stones, these hoop earrings are 2 inches long and the 4 Amethyst stones are 1/2 inch long each. Stones will vary in coloring.
