Happy Thanksgiving - ButterBeeScraps Vintage Key Necklaces - Small Business Saturday Shopaholic SALE-bration

Happy Thanksgiving!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends.  We just had a small group this year but that's ok it was very nice and relaxing.  It's always nice to have a day spent with the ones you love and give thanks for all the many blessings in life.

Today, I have some vintage key necklaces to share with you.  This past summer when I was at a local antique shop I found a two sandwich sized ziplock bags filled with all kinds of vintage keys.  I knew exactly what I wanted to do with then--turn them into necklaces.  I used several small bits and pieces from metal filigrees to charms and crystals from ButterBeeScraps to embellish the keys.

Here is the first necklace.  For this one I added some  SS8 Crystal Rhinestone Chain TrimSilver FiligreeSilver Jump Rings, and  Silver Chain from ButterBeeScraps.  I also painted and distressed the key and added a tiny white pearl flower.

All of the necklaces are pretty much the same style--all painted and distressed and then embellished.  For this necklace I added a Bronze Filigree FlowerSilver Miniature Butterfly Charms, and a SS16 Clear Flat Back Glass Rhinestones.  Then I added a Bronze Jump Rings and attached it to some Bronze Chain (Item #CH779-B),

for the third necklace I added Bronze FiligreeSS8 Crystal Rhinestone Chain Trim and a Clear AB SS8 Pointy Back Crystal Rhinestones.  I added a Silver Jump Ring and Silver Chain.  I also added a tiny white pearl flower.

This is one of my favorite ones. The key is so tiny and the design is very simple.  To embellish this key I added a Bronze Tibetan Style Connectors (Item #J375-B)Copper Lock and Key Toggle Clasps (Item #CL543-C)SS16 Clear Flat Back Glass Rhinestones, and a Crystal Charm.  The key was added to a Bronze Jump Ring and Bronze Chain (Item #CH779-B).

This necklace is another favorite.  I added a Cabochon that I added a small bird image to and then I added a Bird Charm.  I attached the key to a Bronze Jump Ring and Bronze Chain (Item #CH779-B).

I had a lot of fun creating necklaces with these vintage keys.
