Lipstick as Liberation

Did you know lipstick is a symbol of the fight for women's rights? In 1912, when American women marched for equal rights, suffragettes wore red lipstick to capture their spirit of defiance. Many intentionally wore it to intimidate the men who worked against their cause. While one might think of lipstick as a frilly luxury, it is actually a symbol of women's liberation and defiance, a reminder of the bold steps taken toward independence. The enamel lipstick charm is the perfect cheeky charm to wear as a nod to the road paved by the women who came before you, as well as a classic and eternal symbol of feminity.

Womanhood in Nature: The Essence of Life

Nature is bursting with symbols of femininity. The sapphire and diamond bee charm represents the nurturing and abundance women bring to the world. The golden scarab charm symbolizes rebirth and is a charm that can capture the many roles women play throughout their lives and how women reinvent themselves as they grow and mature. The moon is one of the oldest symbols of femininity, representing the cycle of life, something women are intimately familiar with in their own cycles. The diamond crescent moon charm captures that divine feminine essence.

Girlhood is a time of discovery, dreams, and the first steps into womanhood. The little girl charm and the fairy princess charm capture the innocence and wonder of this stage.

Just Us Girls: Celebrating Femininity in All Its Forms

There's joy in embracing the playful and "girly" aspects of being a woman, and there is power in defying stereotypes. The high-heel charm and the little locked handbag charm are classic feminine symbols of style and sophistication, while the girl in bubble bath charm is a reminder to indulge in self-care and relaxation. For the women who leap over stereotypes in a single bound and soar past outdated gender norms, the high-top sneaker charm and swallow charm are symbols of empowerment and individuality. These charms celebrate the strength, independence, and unique spirit of every woman who refuses to be boxed in by traditional roles, reminding us of the boundless potential of being authentically oneself.

Motherhood: The Crown of Life

Motherhood is a uniquely female journey filled with love, sacrifice, and boundless strength. The elephant mom and baby charm and the kangaroo with joey charm capture the essence of nurturing and protection. The queens crown charm is a fitting tribute to the regal nature of motherhood, a role that requires grace, resilience, and unyielding love. A less obvious symbol of motherhood is the egg. The egg represents life and potential, much like the essence of womanhood itself. The frying pan with egg charm and the hidden egg charm are playful iterations of this symbol, reminding us of the life-giving and nurturing aspects of being a woman.
