I was inspired to make this Little Women necklace after watching Greta Gerwig’s adaptation of one of my favourite books of all time: Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy linked together by antique gold chain.
I wrote about the film (and running!) here.
The original family of persisters. Louisa May Alcott was a feminist and abolitionist - so much of the book was autobiographical, with Marmee based on her own mother Abigail May a suffragist and activist. It is the first feminist book I read and it has never stopped inspiring me.
Chains are nickel free and adjustable to three lengths. The names are made of two layers of acrylic on antique gold chains. Moisture can discolour metal parts, particularly gold chains.
