Keys 641 – 643 Beauty in the Beat Up

If I could put a strike-through over beat up I would do it and make the title of this post: Keys 641 – 643 Beauty in the Beat Up Well-Traveled. I like the way beauty in the beat up sounds – I’m not an advocate for people getting knocked out by life (or worse, other people) – it’s just that I prefer the individual patinas of objects that have been on a journey. I love found and upcycled objects because they are interesting, unique, and quite impossible to replicate.

Key 641 – a lovely rusty washer from the road and a ring snaking around the centre…

Key 642 – a pretty flowered locket on the one side and a delicate pearl of a heart on the other side that’s centred in a piece of jewelry that’s well-traveled.

I’m really happy with how the end of this key turned out; it’s more key-like than most of the other ends.

Key 643 is very silver; that’s a needle threader and a butterfly on the end of the one side and a pair of angel wings on the centre of the other side.
