The Beautiful Sunflower, the Symbol of American Suffrage--Anniversary Bracelets in Sterling Silver created by jewelry artist Jennifer Reed, owner of Relish are on sale. Email us to purchase or for more information:
These beautiful bracelets pictured above were created by jewelry artist, Jennifer Reed, proprietor of "Relish", a locally owned business in Millcreek, PA. If you are a resident or visitor to Erie, please stop in her shop and see the beauty they create.
This anniversary suffrage bracelet is all sterling silver. The piece features white beach glass for the purity of the movement, "Votes for Women" and ratifying the 19th Amendment. It is also significant as Erie, Pennsylvania is a lake community and well know for the past time of this treasure of our beaches in all colors and shapes. We welcome all to visit our Presque Isle beaches on the Great Lake of Erie!
Also featured on this bracelet is the sunflower. The sunflower is the state flower of Kansas and was adopted by the American suffrage movement as the symbol of the women's mission. The gold of the sunflower brought gold to the women's sashes which carried the colors of purple, white and gold.
You will also find three Swarovski chrystals of purple, white and gold, set in sterling on this lovely piece of jewelry.
This commemorative suffrage bracelet sells for$50.00 and is available by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org . There is room to personalize the bracelet with a state charm or LWV charm, which we hope to make available for the national LWV convention in Washington DC, Summer 2020, the "Year of the Women". You will find nothing like it anywhere else!
Thank you to Relish, a woman owned-local Erie business, for supporting the work of the League of Women Voters.
