This line of jewellery is inspired by early feminist history and 18th century botanical pioneers Mary Delany and Anne Wollstonecraft. Despite living in a time where only men were meant to be scientists, they managed to navigate the constricting gender norms by taking an acceptably feminine skill like drawing and use it to study plant life.
This necklace is handmade from pressed forget-me-nots that have been encapsulated in resin along with a silvertone venus sign on a black base. The elliptical frame measures 19 mm and the chain measures 50 cm. Both the frame and the chain are made of stainless steel that is totally free of nickel and lead.
