Pirate Captain Jack
Our “Pirates of the Caribbean” pendant is fashioned from the Pirate Jack “Calico” Rackham’s “Jolly Roger” flag. Calico Jack was an English pirate captain during the early 18th century. His nickname was derived from the colorful calico clothes he wore. Calico Jack became captain by staging a mutiny against his former captain in 1718.
Calico Jack is notorious for employing two infamous females, Anne Bonny and Mary Read. Anne Bonny quickly became his lover; it is said she left her husband, started dressing like a man, and returned to the high seas with Calico Jack to begin her own notorious pirating career. During their exploits, they took on a male crew member who became the object of Anne’s attention. The crew member was later found out to be Mary Read, another woman who was masquerading as a man! The three became famous as pirates and lovers.
