sweetheart jewelry

bracelets made by my grandfather during world war II

I had the pleasure of giving a presentation at the Minnesota Historical Society, back in 2007. The presentation was sweetheart jewelry of World War II ; about the souvenirs and sentimental items sent back to loved ones during the war. It was especially popular during World War II. During the war many people here at home would wear jewelry reflecting the branch of service a loved one was serving as well as patriotic themed jewelry.
