In World War I and II, some American and British uniforms had buttons as miniature lockets, containing either space for photographs or tiny compasses. Now that’s a good idea. Picture a Google Earth micro chip placed in your locket…you’d never get lost again.
I’m planning to make one with a tiny garden inside to beat the winter blues, which I will show you once it happens. If you don’t feel crafty, tinyhappy from Australia makes beautiful embroidered linen pieces placed in copper lockets.
The miniature is hand painted on copper and placed in the leather case.
