Summary

Necklace made for Jenny Bannister by Fitzroy jeweller William Llewellyn Griffiths for the opening of the 2008 Melbourne Fashion Festival at Government House. She wore it as a symbol of her anger, while informally meeting with politicians to discuss the demise of Australian manufacture and design.

Also worn by Jenny during a 2009 ABC 7.30 Report interview about the closing of her business, which was partly due to the inability to have her clothing manufactured in Australia.

Physical Description

Bold metal necklace with words 'MADE IN AUSTRALIA' suspended from three rectangular diamante plates on either side that are then attached to a silver chain with clasp.
