The Ignore less necklace in sterling silver is a quote from Juana Inés de la Cruz. Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz (1648-1695) was born in New Spain, present day Mexico. She educated herself by secretly reading through her maternal grandfather’s library. Her intelligence brought her fame from a young age – gaining her patronship from the vicereine. Later on, de la Cruz knew that marriage likely meant ceding her studious autonomy. The passion to continue learning pushed her to become a Hieronymite nun, ensuring the freedom to read and write without a husband’s permission.
