Amelia Earhart

Today is National Amelia Earhart Day, honoring her birthday and her tremendous achievements as an adventurer, author, and record-breaking pilot!

I could not imagine a better way to celebrate this Power Woman AND introduce a curation of jewels inspired by an avian theme: Meet the Feathers!

We celebrate Mary with Feral Jewelry's aquamarine and talon pendant.

AMELIA EARHART

Today is National Amelia Earhart Day, honoring her birthday and her tremendous achievements as an adventurer, author, and record-breaking pilot!

I could not imagine a better way to celebrate this Power Woman AND introduce a curation of jewels inspired by an avian theme: Meet the Feathers!

Amelia became the first woman to fly SOLO across the Atlantic on May 20th, 1932 (among many other records). She then set out to become the first woman to fly around the world on June 1, 1937. Just over a month later and short of the remaining 7,000 miles, her plane disappeared in transit to Howland Island in the Pacific Ocean.

Among her other accomplishments, Amelia served as the first president of @TheNinetyNinesInc (an awesome sisterhood of pilots), was an early champion of the Equal Rights Amendment, and became a visiting aeronautical engineering advisor at Purdue University as well as providing career counseling for women students.

Amelia Earhart's letter to the New York Times

LETTER TO THE NY TIMES

Don’t call me “Mrs.”!

Another reason why Amelia Earhart is such an awesome Power Woman is because she eloquently requested of the New York Times that they call her by HER full name - not her husband's name.

Below is her letter…

Dear Mr. Sulzberger:

May I make a request of the Times through you? Despite the mild expression of my wishes, and those of G.P.P, I am constantly referred to as “Mrs. Putnam” when the Times mentions me in its columns.

I admit I have no principle to uphold in asking that I be called by my professional name in print. However, it is for many reasons more convenient for both of us to be simply “Amelia Earhart”. After all (here may be a principle) I believe flyers should be permitted the same privileges as writers or actresses.

I have written Mrs. Sulzberger to thank her for sending me the lovely orchids, and here are my thanks to you. It was pleasant, indeed to be so remembered.

Sincerely yours,
Amelia Earhart

Feral Jewelry Aquamarine Talon Pendant

FERAL JEWELRY - AQUAMARINE AND TALON PENDANT

Not only do we get to celebrate Power Woman Amelia Earhart on National Amelia Earhart Day, but I could not imagine a more brilliant way to introduce a curation of jewels that are inspired by an avian theme: Meet the Feathers!

Much like Amelia Earhart was an independent spirit, keen for adventure, @FeralJewelry is infused with a bold, fearless beauty that endures! This egg-shaped aquamarine jewel takes flight clutched by a silver and diamond-encrusted talon and is imbued with Susan's wildly precious vision!
