My grandmother's wedding ring was made from a spent bullet casing.
Like so many other Europeans, she sold her original ring during the War, to feed her starving children.
After the War, refugees in Europe did anything to survive. One man made wedding rings out of spent bullet casings. My grandfather bought one for my grandmother.
The love of my grandparents, and the horror of that war, resided inseperably on my grandmother's finger until the day she died.
