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.’”

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
