Key Pendants Abound

July 06, 2010, 15:56 pm  Posted by Lark

Key pendants are a popular trend. Traditionally keys have represented security, safety and mystery. Perhaps now, they also have us thinking about opening new doors and economic hopes. I was curious to see what the indy artists of Etsy were doing with the idea. Here’s a sampling of some keys that grabbed my attention.gallery of keys

    My husband has his grandfather's key (the man was 101 when he died), what a wonderful and creative way to enjoy them instead in lying around in a drawer.

    Keys are also being used by many lampwork artists. Beads are created directly on the steel shank, some fixed in place and some so that they can slide. It is a great combination of old and new! Jeri

    I love #1 and #7…number #1 is pretty and #7 is just so authentic looking! I'm hoping on this trend wagon!

    A customer brought in a fabulous key, looking for chain and beads to go with it. It turned out it was the key to her grandmother's house – her gran was deceased and this was going to be a wonderful way to honor and remember her with.
