A statement necklace designed in honour of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who served 27 years on the Supreme Court. Notorious RBG! 

Her fight for gender equality amounted to a revolution for women in America. She was given the "Notorious RBG" moniker in a Tumblr started by law student Shana Knizhnik (who has written a book with Irin Carmon of the same name.) A play on the Notorious B.I.G., a rap star, Knizhnik said, "Here you had this diminutive person, this tiny human, and nobody saw her as a badass. But when you see what she has done, over years, with such dignity and grace, it represented that." When RBG was asked if it made her uncomfortable, she said, "Why should I feel uncomfortable? We have a lot in common. First and foremost, we were both born and bred in Brooklyn, New York."

Chains are nickel free and adjustable to three lengths. The word Notorious is approx 9cm. (31/2in.) long. It is cut from 3mm. acrylic. Necklaces will snap under pressure – please do not bend.
Moisture can discolour metal parts, particularly gold chains.  

£2 from the sale of every Notorious RBG necklace will go to Women for Refugee Women – a UK-based charity that supports women who are seeking asylum and challenges the injustices they experience. 

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 Tracked 24 or Special Delivery.

All orders are shipped by Royal Mail Second Class unless otherwise stated.

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.
