Candice Cox, the creative mind and business owner behind Oakland based company CanDid Art, is a self-taught jewelry designer. She grew up in Oakland, California, where her parents nurtured her creative talents early on while simultaneously instilling the importance of hard work, and having passion behind whatever she does. Upon graduating from Howard University School of Business, Candice moved back to California where she had a successful stint working for a top Fortune 100 Company. Candice then left the cushy confines of the corporate world in an effort to make her mark in Brooklyn, NY, inspiring herself through local culture, fashion, and people. CanDid Art was born. Established in 2011, CanDid Art is inspired infinitely by research and affinity with African visual culture, indigenous design vernacular, and cosmic geometry. Each piece is handcrafted and is created for the fearless fashion enthusiast who desires to make a statement without saying a word. CanDid Art's funky urban-chic designs have graced the pages of numerous publications such as Essence Magazine, GQ, San Francisco Magazine, Design Sponge, Pynk, Vocab, and Rolling Stones magazine, and have been worn by celebrities. In 2018, CanDid Art Accessories rebranded as simply CanDid Art, to expand their design offering to Jewelry, Art, and Home Decor.
