To celebrate the publication of Helen Lewis's Difficult Women: A History of Feminism in 11 Fights, introducing the DIFFICULT necklace for all you empowered, awkward, complicated women who refuse to accept injustices or smooth things over, make nice and go with the flow! 

You may have already seen the Difficult Woman necklace I designed specially for the release of Helen's book last year. You can take a look and read her thoughts here. 

I have been wanting to do a series of particularly feminine insults as necklaces for ages, and this was the perfect opportunity. There will be more coming! 

The word difficult measures 9.5 by 3.5 cm. (33/4 by 11/4 in.). It is cut from 3mm mirror acrylic and glued to a backing layer of 3mm. matte black acrylic. The  necklace comes on a black chain adjustable to three lengths. 


£2 goes to Women for Refugee Women – a UK-based charity that supports women who are seeking asylum and challenges the injustices they experience. They run a range of activities for refugee women, including English classes, drama and writing workshops, with the aim of empowering them to tell their own stories. 

Shipping & Returns

I aim to send out all orders within three working days of receiving them. 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 Signed For or Special Delivery.

All orders are shipped by Royal Mail Second Class unless otherwise stated. At the moment, strike action is delaying the post by up to a week. Please be patient! 

Signed For will give you a signature on arrival (supposedly) but no guarantee of timing or tracking of your order as it makes it's way to you. 

Special Delivery is supposed to be guaranteed next day, but it may also be delayed. I cannot bel held responsible for delays due to Royal Mail strike action. 

I get proof of postage and cannot be held responsible for parcels that go missing. 

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.

Care Instructions

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