Jamet Gold Acrylic Hoop Earrings
the word 'Jamet' has been thrown about through our history as a negative term, describing loose women (and men). It originates from the French word 'diametre' meaning diameter - referencing revellers who were behaving below the diameter of respectability in society. Persons who would wine, dance, jouk, bruk out, play drums, sing, and purposely wuk up in a way to offend the European upper class who no longer could enslave them after Emancipation.
There is nothing negative about being a Jamet, but everything that forms as an act of resistance against how they tried to demonise our expression and how we kept it alive til today.
Long live the Jamet !
