Inspired by menstruation and "the frustrating, leaking female body," this period jewelry was created in an effort to remove the stigma associated with women's menstrual cycle. Designed by Lili Murphy-Johnson, the collection represents three different stages of Aunt Flow's visit. This includes the mood swings that can indicate pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS), sanitary products referred to by the artist as "period paraphernalia" and the blood itself.
The London-based period jewelry designer created a statement necklace to signify PMS, with a large pink bubble-like pendant that is sure to catch anyone's eye. An oversized ring looks just like a miniature pad or panty liner. A somewhat graphic ruby red brooch mimics a stain any woman will recognize. The pieces are supposed to challenge the perception of that time of month.
