NEW YORK – “How We Swag: Decoding Hip-Hop Jewelry” is the topic for the exclusive, upcoming lecture presented by the American Society of Jewelry Historians (ASJH) on Thursday, September 30, 2010 at The Fashion Institute of Technology. The lecture will discuss the significance of hip hop jewelry and its connection with today’s American culture. Lyneise Williams, an assistant professor in the Department of Art at University of North Carolina, will lead the discussion. Dr. Williams has created a study of this one-of-a-kind style and has been published on this subject.
