I have to admit I have been working on this medal concept for quite awhile. Having used vintage silk ribbons from old medals for a few pieces, I was determined to figure out how to make a new ribbon (the seamstress I am not), that had the feel of the old medal ribbons. After playing with a few last year, and getting frustrated, I put the idea on a back shelf. Here is what I finally created!

The ribbon is a khaki colored grosgrain ribbon from the 1940's..or so I've been told. It is 1 1/2" wide and approx. 1 3/4" long. It has a bar pin hand stitched to the back. Attached to the ribbon is a vintage black and brown trim piece. The vintage trim is placed between micro thin glass, soldered and finished with an antiqued patina. The oval measures 1" x 1 1/2", overall this lovely lapel pin measures 1 1/2" x 3 3/4".

Lets give the women (o.k. men too) of days past, who worked hard and stitched lovingly a medal for their work, and our enjoyment. Lets not forget!

My jewelry is a showcase for vintage lace, quilts, paper, marbles and found objects. My way of showcasing these well loved, and forgotten treasures for a new generation to enjoy.
