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 Trim, Silver Filigree, Silver 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 Flower, Silver 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 Filigree, SS8 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.
