A Message in a Poppy

Wear it or collect it with pride!

The suffering of the war has now been melted down and reborn into a beautiful work of art.

These remembrance poppy is made from lead shrapnel balls found in the WW1 battlefields of Flanders, Belgium or in France and mounted on a printed card.

The poppies are made from bullets which were carried in anti-personnel artillery 14-18 munitions (shrapnel shell). These carried a large number of individual bullets and it is these bullets that you find in my personal art.

Inside the box you will find documents with the coordinates of the exact location where the lead shrapnel balls were found.

This is not a personal poppy brooch
