I have always loved old skeleton keys. I think they’re so beautiful. I was excited when I saw that the talented jewelry designer behind the Etsy shop Beyond the Rockz was inspired to create necklaces based on his own collection of antique and vintage keys (above).
Al created molds from the old keys, and this is how the necklaces turned out:
Aren’t those cool? I think this would be the perfect gift for a house lover. In fact a girlfriend of mine (and loyal reader) told me she already gave the Beyond the Rockz link to her husband as a hint, hint for Christmas. Clever girl!
I’m proud to have Beyond the Rockz as one of my long-time sponsors. Using mostly antique and handmade tools, they create each piece of jewelry with fairly-traded stones and recycled or repurposed metals.
