Now, I have been collecting key charms for quite some time. For some reason, the look and feel of old skeleton keys is very appealing to me. So, I decided to use those key charms to make--surprise, surprise--a key charm bracelet!
And so... Voilà!
The above picture is my favorite of all that I have taken of it, hands down. Not bad, considering I took it using my left hand! (That is even more significant, of course, considering I am right-handed.)
Here are some more photos...
I greatly enjoy the mixed metal look... It uses silver, brass, copper, gold, and gunmetal. Something to match every outfit! It also makes it feel a bit more eclectic, which is very fitting for a charm bracelet.
Perhaps my favorite part of the bracelet--or, at least, really high on the list--is the toggle clasp that my friend helped me find. It is, of course, a key:
Isn't that awesome?!
...It doesn't take much to make me happy.
Anyway, actually putting the thing together was a bit of a pain... the chain and the jumprings did not want to cooperate. Ah well... The result was worth it! Especially since it has a pleasing weight to it, it looks neat, and--most of all--it makes the most delightful tinkling noise! *moves her wrist just to hear the sound*
I hope to keep adding more keys as I find them--just like you would do for any self-respecting charm bracelet. I also saved some keys so that I can make another one, to sell. I will greatly enjoy coming up with the story to go with that listing!
