“Retro Domesticity” Bracelets

These gorgeous, handmade bracelets feature original charms from the forties.

The artist Jeanne Slather (charmedbracelets.net) says:

These charms first caught my eye because they seemed so odd: What kind of woman would choose to hang a sterling silver ironing board from her wrist? Was it a not-so-subtle symbol of domestic bondage?

A tiny toaster, with slices of toast that pop up. A push lawn mower. A sewing machine, also with moving parts. And my favorite, a bug sprayer with a moving handle.

Personally, I adore the bug sprayer.
