A rare mourning treasure. This precious book charm slides open to reveal a tiny tintype of a loved one.
Probably travelling at sea?
Highlighted by the oily iridescence of a natural, rough, stick pearl.
I wonder what this old banjo was before its new life as a pretty pendant?
A Band of Hope?
A big, bold, crusty antique micro-mosaic.
An old mosaic,
a creamy banjo,
an ocean memento,
a hidden picture,
and a bit of hope,
soon, at Age Before Beauty.
