These two pieces from the 1940's era epitomize the do-it-yourself mindset prevalent during the war and after (men just weren't around - unless they were very old or very young). The new woman was strong - fully capable of restringing her own broken necklaces - among other things, like working. The card on the left has a faint pencil notation, "July 15 - 31". There are some bends in both cards but they are complete. Both have lengths of nylon wound around them. Cards measure a little over 5 inches by 3 inches across. Directions to restring are printed underneath the wound nylon. Whether you're interested in this item(s) for the bold graphic (lovely vintage hairdo!) or want to own them because of what they represent, either way, you get a little peek into a different world and different times.
