|Votes For Women Brooch |
I doubt that the 8th of June was chosen for this year's snap General Election because of its significance to women's political history, but hopefully its being the anniversary of the death of suffragette Emily Wilding Davison will remind British women of just how important their right to vote is. (If you are eligible and have not yet done so, Register To Vote Here!) Certainly Etsy artisans are keen to remember suffrage and it was tough for me to decide which of their many handmade and crafted items to highlight in this month's Top Five post.
Jewellery in the Women's Social and Political Union colours (purple for dignity, white for purity, green for hope) is particularly prevalent across Etsy and I liked this bronze Votes For Women Brooch (pictured above) made by VeeAccessories in Sunderland. Vee has dozens of suffragette themed brooches and pins to choose from and each one is unique.
