Product Details


The brooch is limited edition and the anodised aluminium disks were designed to represent the parlimentary scrolls, echoing the glass disks in ‘New Dawn’. It is constructed from polished aluminium printed and dyed by hand in all of the colours of the women’s suffrage organisations.
Each brooch is unique due to its hand-made nature and is made using traditional riveting methods and modern dying techniques. The dyed aluminium and hand printed imagery varies from piece to piece giving you a beautifully hand crafted piece of art jewellery to treasure forever.

Dimensions: 6 × 3 cm
Care Instructions:

Keep your purchase in its original box and in a dry place if possible.

Please do not use abrasive materials on any of your purchases.

Only use a silver cloth or a soft cotton cloth for silver surfaces. Use only soapy water and an old soft bristle toothbrush on aluminium surfaces.


The Story of the ‘New Dawn’ Brooch commission

Sally Lees was commissioned in 2016 to create a collection of jewellery to accompany the installation of ‘New Dawn’ a light sculpture by Mary Branson to celebrate women’s suffrage. The collection was recommissioned with some new pieces for the Vote 100 exhibition at Westminster Hall in 2018.

The imagery on this brooch is inspired by the Parliamentary scrolls on which The Representation of the People’s Act, that gave some women the right to vote was written on.
