One of my favorite things to find while treasure hunting has always been old skeleton keys. I love how each key carries its own history and at one time had a very important task of unlocking cabinets or door locks or maybe even a vault! Most of the keys were made of brass and its always fun to sort through stacks to find the one with the most patina or special shape. I never seem to tire of incorporating them into some of my designs. Just thought I would share some pictures of necklaces I have made using skeleton keys.
