5. The FFS

jewellery, bracelet, necklace, fashion accessory, bead,

The FFS, with studios in both Los Angeles and Miami, is a collaboration between sisters Cheryl Freeman and Donna Freeman Hughes (their name is an abbreviation of the Fabulous Freeman Sisters). Cheryl's formal training is counterbalanced by Donna's intuitiveness, and their pieces commingle leather with copper and vulcanite with diamond. They cite references as diverse as Gustav Klimt and Grace Jones, and indeed, their work hints at Art Nouveau, with a gentle nod toward Afrofuturism.
