In celebration of the upcoming release, May shared through a campaign video the inspiration behind her latest design. “Throughout my collaborations, I always try to go back and say thank you to whoever was supporting me at the time,” May shared with Jordan Brand in an interview. “My grandmother on my dad’s side gifted me gold and jade bangles that she’d had for 20 years before that. As a young girl, my grandmother on my mom’s side also gifted me her jade bangles. Those were my first pieces of jewelry.”
