Vintage 14K Gold Clothespin Pendant


This 14k gold vintage clothespin pendant spoke to us on many levels. It felt like a reminder that, for generations, a woman’s role was handling the domestic labor of the household. Wearing  this clothespin pendant as a necklace feels both ironic and empowering—a way to reclaim an object that could once be seen as oppressive. A clothespin is the embodiment of women’s domesticity, and wearing it as jewelry symbolizes that women are no longer limited to that role—but it is also a reminder that we still have to fight for our rights. 

The pendant is made of beautiful 14k gold, with a great warm hue. Plus, the form is so sculptural! 

The pendant weighs 8.3 grams. It is approximately 1/4” wide and 2 1/2” long, not including the oval bail which is 5.4 x 7.9 mm.
