Today while popping downtown to meet Dazee for lunch, I ran into one of the vintage resale shops near his office and bought myself a present. I don't often buy jewelry, but I couldn't resist this bracelet.
I polished it up (it still needs a proper baking soda bath) and then looked online to see if I could learn anything about it. It turns out "forget-me-not" bracelets were a popular World War II 40s era trinket.
The old style names on mine are just the best: Juanita, Frank, Earle, Evans, Maxine, Katherine, May, Lois and Flora. Even if these people were forgotten for a little while, I will do my best to remember them again.
