Shelley Worrell's family is from Trinidad, with African and Indian heritage. Listen as she tells of the connection her bangles create.“My name is Shelley Worrell. Most of my family came, I would say, in the 60s, 70s, into the early 80s. My object is – are my bangles, and um the reason why they have such significance to me personally is because my grandmother um, my father’s mother, always had on bangles, and I always loved the sound of them shaking. And, often in the Caribbean, you also saw – It was just sort of a part of… you know an extension of your body. So for me, it just- I feel very comforted by, by my bangles and it makes me feel like I’m wearing a piece of the Caribbean all the time.”
