Her collection includes tampon charm bracelets.

Lili Murphy-Johnson, a British jewelry designer who crafts accessories that represent phases of the menstrual cycle, has been banned by Etsy after the e-commerce site determined that some of the images she used were “inappropriate,” Women’s Health writes. Her collection, the article says, includes tampon charm bracelets, pad-inspired cocktail rings and broaches that look like blood stains. As she explained her cause to Cosmopolitan: “Periods aren’t something that happens on accident. I want this to be something that [people] actually choose to show, reclaim, and say, ‘Yeah, I have periods. Everyone does and this is my jewelry.’”

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
