We The People

"If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible; who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time; who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer."
- Barack Obama, November 4, 2008

Handmade from an official ballot printed for the 2008 general election, these limited-edition sterling silver necklaces celebrate the historic election of Barack Obama as the first African-American president of the United States.

The ballots featured are either stand-by ballots (used in case the voting machines break down) or absentee, military and special ballots. The double-sided necklace showcases two parties that supported Barack Obama: the Democratic Party and the Working Families Party.

Designed by UncommonGoods in partnership with artist Jeff Davis. Handmade in Philadelphia from an official paper ballot framed in acrylic with a sterling silver ball chain. Each necklace comes with a certificate of authenticity.

Great product, not actually wearable

        Comments about OFFICIAL DEMOCRATIC BALLOT NECKLACE:

        I really love the idea behind this necklace. My friend is getting her PHD in political science and so I purchased this as a gift for her. It's really neat and the fact that it has a certificate of authenticity is really cool. However, It is not at all wearable on the chain they put it on. It seems they intended it as more of a memorabilia and not actual jewelry. I still love it and would recommeneded it to anyone interested in politics!

        Service and delivery comments:

        As always, uncommongoods shipped super quickly always comes way before you expect it even when you choose the longest shipping. I love the service and delivery of this site every time

            What a wonderful way to remember the election! Not sure the recipient will wear this as a necklace, but I am certain it will be cherished. Not really the most stylish design, but a great way to remember.

              This was a present for my mother, who loved it. It is a unique way to celebrate a fantastic day in United States history. I wish that the pendant had been a little more sturdy for the price.

                This is a great idea for a reminder of a time like no other, however it is so cheap, plasticy and low quality looking, I had to send it back. Made like it's a piece for kids. The price does not reflect the quality.

                    Great Idea but not executed very well. Looks cheap and a necklace should look good. I am retruning this. This should have been done with some metal behind it so it looked good enough to wear.

                      Although the necklace holds special memories I was disappointed in the length of the chain. Had I realized how short it was I would not have ordered it. I'll have to try and find a smiliar one but longer, which adds to the total cost being more money.

                        I've never seen this item anywhere. People have been asking where I got it, and I'm proud to say "Uncommon Goods" because shopping at your store shows I have good taste, and an eye for the unusual. For sure, this item is definitely unusual!
