A story comes with each footstep, and an object carries forth a piece of history. This is the one of the objectives within my own art, a story to tell and a sensation of mystery. Much like trench art during both World Wars and even the Civil War, metal casings from bullets and mortar shells became pieces of art, many were sent home to loved ones in honor of their support. In the same sense, I have been creating my own war ensembles, military inspired jewelry that reap my fascination to such personal stories of war and their history.
~ Leadership Militant Unisex WWII Whistle Necklace: created from USA made WWII whistle and brass nautical star.
~ The Golden Army Knife Necklace: made with vintage engraved pocket knife with Coldstream military cap emblem on gold chain.
~ United We Stand Eagle Unisex Necklace: made from vintage American bald eagle pendant on thick gold chain. (To be worn with pride.)
