To mark the 20th Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf, Cynthia Nash has created a collection of specially designed jewelry named in honor of Woolf.
The Virginia Woolf Collection includes tanzanite and garnet Swarovski crystals, with tanzanite representing Woolf’s favorite colored ink and garnet symbolizing friendship, wholeness and success, according to Nash.
The idea for the jewelry collection started with Kristin Czarnecki, organizer of this year’s conference at Georgetown College in Georgetown, Ky, whose theme is “Woolf and the Natural Word.” She said Nash asked many questions about Woolf and read To the Lighthouse before designing the necklace, bracelet and earrings in Woolf’s honor.
“Cindy’s Virginia Woolf jewelry is a lovely, lasting memento of Woolf’s significance in our lives and the fellowship we enjoy at each year’s conference,” Czarnecki said.
