    "The abundance of items created by soldiers in World War I and in the years immediately after gave rise to the term “trench art.” Over time, the term has become generalized to refer to art made from ordnance or military equipment from any era."
    (Smithsonian, National Air and Space Museum)

    These are well known and documented pieces that were very popular during the War. Often seen as sweetheart gifts and engraved with a wife or girlfriend's name.

    This example has a double bracelet. Attached by typical era aluminum repair rivets. Top piece is engraved with "Gaum 1945" and palm trees/ island scene.

    My trench art, my photos-- don't copy.
