Bringing attention to some of history’s most fascinating women in science, technology, engineering and math who often go unnoticed, Auberg Designs has created these beautiful women in STEM silhouette necklaces.
Including Grace Hopper, Ada Lovelace, Hypatia, Sophie Germaine, Hedy Lamarr, and Marie Curie, Sally Ride and several others, the necklaces ($62-$122) are available in sterling silver, copper or brass and come with a biography of each woman. And these don’t only look cool, they are pendants with a purpose… for each necklace purchased, a $5 donation in the buyer’s name is made to Girls Who Code.
Auberg Designs makes “jewelry for classy geeks that’s subtle enough for daily wear that will be recognizable to those in the know.” If you love their STEM women pendants, you should also check out the Star Trek, Buffy, Game of Thrones and Battlestar Galactica inspired collections.
All of the pieces are handmade by self-proclaimed nerd Lauren Goldberg, “I’m a Trekkie, Browncoat, Whedon-holic, Whovian … the list goes on and on. If it’s nerdy, I like it.”
Well, we really like it!
