Hi there! Just thought I'd like to show you what I made yesterday. I recieved some house keys in a supply swap a while ago and it wasnt until yesterday I came across these beautiful little things http://mysalvagedtreasures.blogspot.com/2011/03/visions-of-spring-repurposed-jewelry.html
that I thought I might give it a go too! They were super duper fun to make, I made them all in one afternoon because I was having so much fun I couldn't stop!
So here are my keys that I made into pendants or hanging ornaments, made from broken jewelery, buttons and gems Smiley










I think this one is my favourite Smiley
Thanks for looking Smiley

  Shocked Oh pretty and there are lots of keys floating about my place that are in need of this. Thanks for posting this is very great and hate to say that I wouldn't have thought of doing it myself. Embarrassed

Yes actually now that I think of it, they do kind of look like maces or hammers dont they! Especially the last one. Haha Smiley

Those are gorgeous!  I've often felt frustrated at not knowing what to do with lonely non-vintage keys... this is a real inspiration.  Not to mention yet another fine example of how *everything* looks better when it's blinged up   Grin

Thanks for sharing.
