Delicious Neck Candy: 7 Fresh, New Antique and Vintage Key Necklaces

Sometimes I get on a roll.  I get in my studio and I STAY in my studio, unmindful of the hours sneaking way past 3 am.  Through podcast after podcast and glass after glass of iced tea, out of these dream-defying moments some real magic can be made--like these 7 one-of-a-kind necklaces starring antique and vintage keys and components.  For sale now at Urban Heirlooms.  I hope you like them!

  1. Thank you, Jenna and Jennifer! I loved digging through my stash of keys and trying them out with other components. I'm glad you like the results. :)

  2. I really love the 2nd one but they are all fabulous.

  3. Thanks, Sewlutions! That's my favorite, too. I need to make one for myself.


I love hearing from you!
