Repurposed Keys Make A Fashion Statement

What can we do with old keys? Everyone has some around the house. I found a fun and unusual way to repurpose these keys.

I have had a bag of discarded keys sitting around for years so I decided to turn them into jewelry. I wanted to use the keys to make pendants and whimsical necklaces. I had a few old necklaces that needed repairing. Once the necklaces were fixed, I went to work bedazzling the keys with broken pieces of jewelry, beads, filigree findings, charms, and found objects

. Then I added them to the variety of newly repaired chains and neckwear.

The results from this “jewelry experiment” are amazing! Which one is your favorite? I encourage you to use your creativity and try this project. Good luck!
