The most recognised colours are still purple and green meaning dignity and hope respectively. The cuffs are decorated with a scroll motif which is taken from an original drawing by Sally and represents the end of the scroll that the Representation of the People Act is written on.

Story:

Sally was commissioned by The Houses of Parliament to make cuffs decorated with scrolls and in the colours of the suffrage movement for the Voice and Vote exhibition in 2018 as an addition to the ‘New Dawn’ jewellery collection made by Sally in 2016 to celebrate Women’s Suffrage.

The design is a sketch of the end of the scrolls that is used in the ‘New Dawn’ light sculpture by Mary Branson. The Representation of the People Act gave women over 30 the vote for the first time in English history.
