WHO IS SHE?

BRITTANY CHEYANNE TURNER

Founder, Owner & Creative Director 
Founded by Brittany Cheyanne Turner, with roots from the people of the red earth, Haliwa-Saponi Tribe in Hollister, North Carolina, and a grounding in doing business in the good way. Brittany designs and handcrafts Cheyanne Symone earrings in Ypsilanti, MI. 

"I started Cheyanne Symone in 2018 when I saw a need for high quality and sustainable indigenous style beaded earrings that were versatile enough to be worn everyday in a professional work environment and yet bold enough to make a statement. Cheyanne Symone is a combination of my identity as an environmental/energy scientist and an artist."
- Brittany T.
