Today I thought i would start out with posting one of the Tintypes from my collection that I have used in one of my pieces. These old photographs fascinate me. I love looking at the amazing clothes people used to wear, let alone jewelry! It is also so weird for me to think that this is all these people have left of proof of their existence. They have no family, a name, or a history. This is it. I love including them in my work. I create a family tree for the lost.
