DIFFICULT necklace

in collaboration with Helen Lewis

Designed to celebrate the publication of Helen Lewis's Difficult Women: A History of Feminism in 11 Fights, this Difficult necklace is for all empowered, awkward, complicated women who refuse to accept injustices and just make nice.

£2 goes to Women for Refugee Women.


All chains are adjustable to three lengths

Details & Dimensions

The word 'difficult' is cut from 3mm. mirror acrylic and glued to a backing layer of 3mm. matte black acrylic. It measures approx. 9.5 by 3.5 cm. (33/4 by 11/4 in.).

It comes on a black chain adjustable to three lengths.

Care instructions

Acrylic can break if dropped and will snap under pressure. Please store your jewellery in its box and keep away from lotions and sprays as moisture can discolour metal parts. 

Shipping & Returns 

I aim to send out all orders as soon as possible, and usually manage within a couple days of receiving them. Special orders and bespoke designs can take up to a week longer, and with such a big range of products, some designs are made to order so can't be sent next day. Please allow two days from ordering to posting even if you choose Tracked 24 or Special Delivery. 

If for any reason you are unhappy with your purchase you can return it to Wear and Resist in its original box and packaging within a month of purchase for a full refund or exchange. For reasons of hygiene I am afraid I cannot refund earrings.

A beautiful, mindful necklace I’m slightly in the doldrums at the moment and wearing this necklace is a physical reminder that it won’t last forever. It’s beautifully made and I’ve had many comments on it when wearing it. A simple, but powerful piece. Thank you!

About Wear and Resist

Wear and Resist was launched by me, Sarah Day, in early 2017 as a way to channel my frustration at the political climate into a creative pursuit that would raise money for women's charities.
