This is my Dad. At the time the photo was taken, he was a seventeen year old soldier in World War II. His signature on his soldier's record is included as is a small heart styled from a family postcard sent to his father during World War I.
The collage is sandwiched between two pieces of clear glass. It's then assembled with lead-free solder and a handcrafted sterling siver jump ring. It hangs from a hand-dyed brown silk cord with an accent ring that reads, "Forget Me Not".
