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 Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
