The writer was just trying to describe the necklace style. No one was being labelled.
A necklace is being labelled, not a person. I can’t imagine that Native American people don’t want credit for their culture’s art and jewelry.
Yep, I was referring to the necklaces but wasn’t sure of their provenance, hence the question mark in parenthesis. Although I can see how that looks like the sentence ends there and could be mistaken for referring to the person. No worries.
That’s Arpana! She’s actually the designer of most the accessories she’s wearing. She’s Nepali, but no doubt that her art is influenced by a variety of cultures and styles.
to be a blond, a punk or native american (and for sure man or woman) is not a “label” – its just a description, and it would be ok for me when they say a brunette, or a jew, or russian – while the person means nothing humiliating between lines.
