Altered Key Jewellery

Posted by Picasa
Some of my Altered Key Jewelery,
I found a lovely supply of keys in the charity shop this week, so there are more WIP.
ABAA's Challenge for this month is Keys, so thought these fitted the bill.
I have had a lovely day, Catching up on some sorting out this morning, then we went over the moors to princetown and a mooch round the art gallery, then onto Tavistock for a wander along the river, then a mooch round the pannier market and town, with an icecream to finish. and i didn't buy a thing!!!, saving myself for the creative stiches and hobbycraft Exeter next weekend.
i feel a spending spree coming on.

Those keys look really good. Really unusual pieces.

I don't know how you do it - crafting, walking on the moors and going on Facebook - where do you get the time - lol?

Such a creative way with your key finds. They are lovely Jean!
I'm surprised you found keys in a charity shop, unless the donater knew altered artists look for them and the shop staff knew this why would they be there, can they be recut? Perhaps I'm being dim here?
Happy crafting!

Wonderfully unique!
Keys fascinate me, and now I must try altering my own.

Thanks for sharing -- quite inspiring to get myself moving & creating again.
