chopsy adj.

Welsh informal -cheeky, chatty, inclined to talk a lot, belligerent, loud-mouthed.

Calling all chopsy women! Keep speaking up, keep making changes! 

When a customer suggest I make a Chopsy necklace for Welsh Women's Aid in honour of Siân James referring to herself as a Chopsy Woman at their 40th anniversay, I jumped on the chance! I've been looking for a Welsh feminist word, (ffeministaidd is too long to work on a necklace unfortunately) and WWA are an incredible charity. 

And although these necklaces are fun and in good humour, the work that WWA are doing in Wales was highlighted when I googled 'chopsy' and found an article from February 2021 about a man who 'beat up wife because she was chopsy.' Women are still being hit for speaking their minds, so let's celebrate our right to disagree, argue, debate and express ourselves, and keep fighting so that all women can enjoy this level of freedom.

Fabulous! I got Chopsy and Survivor necklaces for two of my most awesome female friends in the USA. They were thrilled - I love them because they actually deliver quite a serious message with a little wit and sparkle. And the charity donation is magic.
