I've had this design in my mind for a long time, and finally had the materials to construct it. There are a lot of wonderful keys in this piece!
The main key is a flat key - so it will sit well without being very heavy. It shows a bit of its age though, darkened and a bit pitted by time. From the center dangles one of the silver-toned drops that are featured throughout this piece. This large key is about 4.5cm long (1.7in). Flanking that are 2 decorative keys with lovely heart designs - another feature that is repeated again.
I've seen a lot of key designs around but I wanted something a bit simpler I guess. A version of this got used in a shot by some models in Dec. Hope I'll have a sample to show you now. Its up on my clockworkzero ETSY site:[link]
The two brass and steel keys are very, very nice - and they are real winding keys as well! I've added a little piece of hardware in front of them to compliment the silver bottoms. One is a size 3 and one is a size 10! These keys were once used to wind clocks.
All of this is strung on a lovely link chain - 3 small links and a longer twisted one. Its a heavy chain that works very well with all the silvery goodness in this necklace.
