Votes for Women ~ Suffragette brooches and chokers.

During the early 20th century the Women’s Social and Political Union in England sold similar portraits of Emmeline Pankhurst to raise funds for their political movement. They wanted to be involved in the running of the country and they wanted to be treated as equals to men.

These pieces of Jewellery are created as a one off to celebrate Votes for Women and the suffrage movements. Wear with pride.

I have added ribbons, small antique buttons and beads   –  From 1908 the WSPU adopted the colour scheme of purple, white and green: purple symbolised dignity, white purity, and green hope. These three colours were used for banners, flags, rosettes and badges.  It is a popular myth that the colours were green, white and violet, in order to spell GWV as an acronym for ‘Give Women Votes’
