Fun with keys!

One of my best sellers lately in my Etsy shop has been keys. I have sold all sorts of varieties...
skeleton
and the rusty, crusty kind...




I loved this set and probably should have kept it, but now they have a new home!



Simple, yet pretty all the same.


And one of my favorite uses for them is to add a special look to my repurposed jewelry designs.











I think they add such a special touch!



I have really found some great collections of old keys in the past and have really been on the look out for more! Always a good seller and a fun thing to collect too!


I'm sharing my vintage keys with linky parties this week at
Common Ground for Vintage Inspiration Friday and
Ala Carte for Junkin Finds Friday
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great weekend everyone!

  11. I too just adore old keys...I have them lying in transferware bone dishes, hanging from jute and often wear around my neck using crocheted lace as the necklace. Your jewelry is so unique and vintage. Thanx for sharing. Tiff
