* Patriotic Trinkets

Do you have items like these lying around in your jewelry box or catch all drawers? I think they are charming and who knows where they originally came from.

What is ironic is that I’ve been trying to buy items like these for patriotic bracelets and guess what, they must all be hidden in drawers and closets, they are very hard to pinpoint.

The charms on this bracelet came from my family trip last summer to Washington, DC and I simply adore them. We went to The Capitol, the White House, Mt. Vernon, Ford Theatre, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and thru out Arlington Cemetery. Lastly we visited the Liberty Bell in Philly. What a trip. I’m so glad we went.

If you have patriotic items, I’m antsy to see them. Please email or text me a picture for my 4th of July Facebook & blog posts. I’d love to share them with others.

Happy Summer, Leah Williams

About Ruby Mae Jewelry

I'm Leah Williams and I adore fabulous buttons and brooches, chains and charms. I find it exciting to look into old tin cans passed down through the generations. They hold buttons and hardware removed from all types of garments. I reuse old buttons and it connects me to men and women that I'll never get to meet. I leave the original thread on a button. I'm inspired to create something new from something that was forgotten. I love, love, love it.
