Douriean Fletcher: The artist behind Oscar-winning Hannah Beachler’s iconic face chain

Hannah Beachler wearing custom face chain designed by Douriean Fletcher at 2019 Academy Awards

Douriean Fletcher, specialty jeweler for Oscar-winning Marvel’s Black Panther, was commissioned to create the iconic face chain worn by Academy Award-winning production designer Hannah Beachler for her red carpet look. Fletcher and Beachler maintained their connection after working together on the historic film. As a Los Angeles based metalsmith specializing in wearable fine art in lustrous gold tones, Douriean Fletcher seized the opportunity to fashion the delicate face adornment with its cascading chain ear cuff. Her work has been seen on Oscar award-winning Ruth Carter, Lupita Nyong’o, Angela Bassett and others making her no stranger to award season requests. 

Hannah’s groundbreaking win and moving speech was a proud moment for the entire Marvel Black Panther creative team and women of color everywhere including Douriean. According to Fletcher, her “…immediate and primary passion as it relates to wearable art is her commitment in supporting women in revealing their true beauty by telling their stories through her work.” The story of film aesthetics has a new chapter and Douriean Fletcher’s masterpiece punctuated the moment.
