Periods are the last thing we expected to inspire a complete collection of accessories, but that’s exactly what this young jewelry designer has done. Unlike us, whose feelings toward our monthly period border on annoyance and (at best) mild inconvenience, Lili Murphy-Johnson decided to turn it into something beautiful.
Working on the idea of society labeling menstruation as dirty and impure, Lili decided to focus on three elements associated with being on your period. First, PMS, represented by a bouncing ball necklace. In an interview with HelloGiggles, Lili said, “I got this idea when I was looking at being easily irritated before my period.”
Second, the products women use to keep their period at bay. That means tampons, soaps, wipes, and—as shown by the ring below—sanitary napkins.
Last and certainly not least, blood (but of course!). Lili designed oversized gem-encrusted rings in deep, bold red to symbolize the fluids we excrete out of our bodies during each cycle. There’s even a brooch that’s meant to look like period stain!
