Adventures in jewelry making

Did I mention there were one dozen keys in the package? January 10, 2013

I’ve given myself a little personal challenge this week.

Can I make twelve one-of-a-kind key charm necklaces?

Finished up four more today and had to stop.

Not because I’ve run out of ideas…yet…, but because I’ve run out of brass chain.

Obviously, I’ve gone down the vintage, romantic road

with all the crystals, pearls, and old buttons.

This next one is my current favorite.

I had to do a bit of figuring out how to attach the key horizontally, but it worked out just fine in the end.

They will all be off to Handful of Wildflowers in La Mesa tomorrow afternoon

and hopefully enjoyed by some new owners soon.

  1. Oh, do like the one where you’ve attached the key differently – super cool. But the one that has my attention is the one on the right in the photos w/either the white pearls or possibly moonstone beads – that one’s gorgeous!!

    I’m a button lover myself, and love to use antique mother of pearl buttons in my own designs. I think my favorites of yours are the ones with the buttons…so pretty.
