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.’”

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
