Hashing out antique key design ideas with my friend, Sharon Misuraco, yielded these little treasures!
And perfect light in the work bench area yielded a new pdf tutorial!
When I hold a handful of these embellished keys, I feel excited; happy with the mix of old and new, mystery and intrigue. The technique is challenging enough to keep me making more but simple enough that they can be finished in 30 minutes (not including curing time for the sealant.).
I really hope you enjoy making them as much as I do!
