Beautiful and Colorful
I bought a bunch of cool looking brass keys online and wanted to use them to make jewelry gifts and things, but I knew I didn't just want to string them on a chain plainly. So I came up with a few ideas.

The first and second keys I made by stringing a Czech glass bead, then the Lucite flower bead on to a headpin and then wrapping the end of the wire around the key and pinching it tight with pliers.

The third key I made by stringing on textured glass pearl beads, then Lucite flower beads and wire wrapping the top. The extra wire after wrapping I didn't trim like I normally would but I curled the ends in to little spirals to look like vines. Then I hung the flowers from a 1 inch length of chain, that was hanging from one side of the key.

Yeah I know what you mean! I had I think forever before I came up with this awesome ideas Happy plus it's extra awesome because you don't really need to know how to wire wrap since you just loop the wire around and around the key until it is all wrapped.
Glad you love it!
