Sponsored Giveaway: >> Peace Images

 Up for grabs is this beautiful choker! 

I was hooked when I first spotted Camille's line Peace Images; I remember spending about an hour perusing through the 100 + pieces of jewelry on her site; and was thrilled when she graciously accepted my proposal to sponsor a giveaway! 

Here's a little bit about Peace Images as told by Camille:
Jewelry is art. I use my "peaces" to tell stories, spark interesting conversations, spread love, teach lessons, or compliment ones spiritual beliefs.  I've been in business for 2.5 years under the constant support of my fiancee. Love moves mountains, and that is the message in all of my "peaces."  Love for yourself and your individuality; you culture,your kinky hair, your curvy hips;  I use symbols and materials that remind us of the greatness from which we came; ankhs, feathers and African fabrics are just a few of the elements I use to create.  I do not feel shackled by trends, but will indulge from time to time. I intend on creating until the universe tells me to stop.
Camille on her new collection;
I just released my Fall collection, "Black Ego;" 17 new "peaces" ranging from earrings, to rings, and everything in between. I worked on it for months, including having to finish the line during a move from San Diego to Los Angeles. I put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into it. It shows. I'm proud.

  3. My definition of a fierce black woman is one that has a sheer confidence about her. It is not overbearing, not necessarily in your face. But it is respected and noted by being in her presence. You know she can make a possibility out of none.

  5. A fierce black woman is the women starting back at you in the mirror. That women understands her destiny and accepts it. She doesn't tire in the storm, she stands tall in the face of adversity and paves the way for those to strive to follow her footsteps. She never loses who she is and has the ability to sit comfortably with many crowds. I am a fierce black woman,a woman of color getting her PhD in a world dominated by those who skin tone does not match my own. We are all fierce black women in our own ways...

  9. The definition of a fierce black woman to me is one who is confident in herself and knows what she wants and what it will take to accomplish whatever goal she might have. She is also who accepts herself, flaws and all, because she knows that all of those things makes her the complete package that can never be duplicated.

    She never belittles another to try and uplift herself. She encourages and leads by example.

  10. A fierce black woman is someone who knows her past, her present, and her capabilities for the future. She understands her mistakes make her a better person because you must make mistakes in order to find out who you are. She is a leader and an icon for herself, her peers, and her community.

  11. i'd say that a fierce black woman is one who is not limited, in her swagger (yes with the er), style, or means of living, by the stereotypes or constraints that have been placed on her . while those things don't hold her back, she is very conscious of them and knows how to work them in her favor .

  12. A fierce black woman is flyy and confident whether she's wearing sweatpants and a t-shirt or a catsuit and stilletos! Hair, makeup, clothes, and people don't make a woman fierce...its her positive spirit, thoughts, love of others and all other things beautiful that make her fierce.

  13. What is your definition of a "fierce black woman? A woman who is comfortable being exactly who she is whether she is giving a presentation to executives or hanging with other fierce black women. Educated, Kind, Down to earth, and most importantly confident in the skin she is wearing her days on this Earth. Big Afros, plump kissable lips, a small waist in big hips or a long relaxed hair glamazon. Her savoir faire is unmatched!

  15. A fierce black woman is one who loves, enjoys and is HERSELF at all times. She commands attention no matter where she is just by being HERSELF. She is comfortable in her skin and needs no one but herself to realize and appreciate her beauty. She holds her head high even in her lowest aspects of life and conquers every part of loving every fiber of her being! She is real, intellegent, sweet, nurturing and independent...A fierce black woman is ME!!

  16. A fierce black woman is a woman who does not wait for a man to open the door, who does not wait for anyone to pay her bills. She knows what she wants and she thrives to get it.

    Sojourner Truth in her "Aint I a woman" speaks of a woman who is frail and dependent. And if she were alive, I would have told her, that I AINT A WOMAN IF I NEED SOMEONE TO HELP ME OVER CARRIAGES, AND OVER PUDDLES AND OFFER ME THE BEST PLACE...I AINT A WOMAN BECAUSE I AM A BLACK WOMAN WHO CARRIES HERSELF AND FIGHTS with her wits and her smarts TO GET THE BEST PLACE...

    A fierce black woman does not need SOCIETY to define and deconstruct her femininity....a fierce black woman solidifies her sexuality and reconstruct her femininity....

  17. A fierce black woman is a woman secure with herself. Who doesn't need validation and approval from anyone but the Heavenly Father. One that can take any outfit or hairstyle and make it her own. One who leads, not follow, who who speaks life, not death, one who builds up, not tear down. A fierce black woman is a woman that eludes confidence from a mile away, who knows she doesn't have to be a size 2 to be fierce. A fierce black one knows that what makes her fierce is what is on the INSIDE.

  22. Definition of a Fierce Black Woman : She is bold, whether it translates through her actions or her "Ruby Woo" Lipstick that she is wearing, she demands attention. She laughs when she feels like crying, she smiles even when faced with her enemies. A fierce black woman embraces her body; not the way society attempts to exploit it, but she knows her body is a temple. She eats healthy and wants to maintain a "healthy" figure. She is emotionally stable; never allowing a man to break her down and deter her from what she stands for. She is a believer in her dreams, and encourages other young black women to embrace their "Fierceness". A fierce black woman knows who she is and whats she is worth.

  25. To me, a fierce black woman is the woman that will not take no for an answer. She is the one who pushes against the norms of society and strives to be all that she can be. She is a trendsetter, a rule changer, a loving and caring woman. She respects the world and isn't afraid to speak her mind when she feels that something is wrong....She knows who she is and embraces it. She balances out her fierceness with humility and an understanding of the world and how it works.

  27. To me a fierce black woman is no that doesn't need to be told she is fierce because she knows it.From the moment she wakes up and starts to her day until she closes her beautiful eyes at night. She lives fierce-ness in her walk, talk and love that she has for herself. She is not stuck up or harsh but you will not walk over her nor is she your doormat. She knows that the love of her partner compliments her it doesn't complete her. I am a fierce black woman.

She is strong, ambitious, ever loving, and beautiful. She stands with confidence, and is "take-no-nonsense".

  56. To me: A fierce black woman is a woman that is confident, knows who she is and her worth and is humble at the same time. She is giver of life--and I use the word "life" in the aspect of speaking positive things into her life and to others, being faithful to everything that she believes in without compromise OR devaluing the beliefs of others.

    She's comfortable in her own skin, with her hair, (relaxed or natural)--tee hee, her style of dress and she's not afraid to show it to the world.

  67. A fierce black women is one who does not live her life according to society. She does not change herself to become something she is not by nature, just to be accepted. She is proud of where she comes from. She defines what she feels to be successful. Her highest level of education does not define her. Her social connections or status does not define her. Material objects do not define her. She define herself and sets an example for all young women to follow. She is a leader of society. Not just black society, but a society of all races. She is independent. She makes mistakes, but learns from them and learns how to improve herself because of them. She realizes she is human and will go through trials and tribulations. But in the end she realizes she can get through all and be as "fierce" as she wants to be by having trusting and faith in herself, but first in God. Because with God's love, grace, and protection, we can all be a "fierce black women.
