The There is no frigate necklace in sterling silver is a quote from Emily Dickinson. Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) lived with her family in the college town Amherst, Massachusetts for most of her life. She only saw eight poems published during her lifetime, even though she wrote almost two thousand. We now recognise her as one of the greatest poets in history – among the likes of Shakespeare and Whitman. Her capacity to articulate subtle, almost imperceivable experiences in effervescent language ensures her poetry’s lasting fame.
