I don’t know if I should call this the dawn of a new era or a return to form. After years of Jewel of the Month posts, I had ZERO last year because fascism and the pandemic had me that distracted from what I love to do. But now that would-be dictator Donald Trump has less than 24 hours in office, I feel ready to dip a toe back into the jewelry world. Let’s just hope we get through this last day without any further attempts by him to overthrow democracy. This asshole needs to just …
Buy this sterling-silver Get the Fuck Outta Here necklace, and I’ll donate $50 to Run for Something in your name. Run for Something helps young, progressive candidates run for local office at all levels, and has helped elect nearly 500 people since 2017. It’s the antidote to that “all politicians are alike” excuse for political apathy. If we want new and better elected officials, we’ve got to support them when they’re starting out! The radical white-supremacist right has very deliberately targeted public offices, as well as the police and military. We can’t afford to cede space, so we’ve got to run people from dogcatcher on up.
I’ll also make a $25 donation to Run for Something for each purchase of my new trio of sterling-silver number earrings: 4, 6, and 7. Wear the 4 and 6 now to celebrate the 46th president, Joe Biden, and switch to the 47 in four years when a dream comes true and Kamala Harris becomes our 47th, and first woman, president.
These earrings will be finished this week. They’re literally on the bench being finished now.
Of course, if you’ve got something besides politics on your mind and prefer to buy a 6 earring and an upside-down 6 earring (niceeee!), holla at me. I’m willing to go along with that!
