HAND
PINS





This scrap card is friendship greetings
"Friends will meet and friends will sever,
But true friendship lives forever."

"Life bear for you it’s sweetest flowers"
The rose and dove symbolize peace and love.

"May true friends be around you"




HANDS

deliver a message in jewelry, especially for the Victorians
with their love of symbols. A hand made of black vulcanite and holding a
yew branch stood for memory. Clasped hands stood for friendship, and a
hand holding a fan flirtation.
