Keys 416 – 419 Moving Along

Feels pretty great to get past the 400 mark – I’m looking forward to getting some time this weekend to make more keys!!!

Key 416: centre terminal* is spray painted white and gold; 80’s earring and 60’s (?) broach on the one side; pearly button, plastic earring and two necklace bits (used to cover up the price that was written on the washer) on the other side.

Key 417: gold spray painted terminal, sparkly gold bracelets (thank you Value Village), and two links from a gold chain make up the base of the key; I used a big plastic jewel on the one side – even though I usually avoid plastic I think this one looks just fine; a broken glass pendant and some older pearly filigree covered beads in the end bits on the other side.

Key 418: copper washer and seals on the handle and a beadless piece of necklace (see the other side of Key 416 for the beads) on the end bit of this unpainted key. Fine black earring from my sister-in-law on the one side and a lovely metal filigree pendant and some beads on the other side.

Key 419: a gold spray painted terminal and the hinge from a cupboard for the base; a decoration from a belt and some beads on the one side; a fancy enamel type bead on the other side along with some tiger eye beads (which were so popular in the 90’s)

*terminal – a metal pin used by the military to tie down metal cables; the ones I’m using are standard military issue stainless steel from 1957.
