ITEM DESCRIPTION: This piece was made in honor of Natalia Smut. She was a popular drag artist whose life was taken at just 24 years young. She had a lot to offer to the community, and she advocated and was an activist for the LGBTQ community.

I wanted to make a piece that I believe Natalia would have wanted to wear, so I made this keychain (optional pendant) that reads "BAD BITCH" in all caps after seeing Natalia's social media. She constantly referred to herself as "a bad bitch" or "that bitch", and with seeing how she moved through the world, she was just that! She was a popular drag artist, and showed up with confidence and ferocity. I hope her bad bitch essense lives on through this piece.

Stainless steel keychain, sterling jump ring, sterling silver piercing with copper on the back layer. The back has the potential for engraving and can also be worn on a chain as a necklace. Without the keychain, this piece measures approximately 2 5/8 x 7/8".
