In a Happy Place: Keys 1631 - 1634
I am blessed to know great people like my friend Kelly; Kelly is smart and fun and entirely generous. Last week I received a box of key making goodies from her:
Key 1631 is made from a long screwdriver bit (Robertson) my husband found on the road; a big rusted metal ring thing (also courtesy of my husband); broken glass; earrings from Kelly; bits from my collection; and a cool medallion that was a clasp on a notebook that I was fortunate enough to have gifted to me by my friend April.
Key 1632 is made with a hinge pin; earrings (a hoop from my collection and clip-ons from Kelly); a beaded bracelet; a brooch; and a tiny gold elephant on a chain). This key is in honour of Kelly and was made with her joyful spirit in mind.
Key 1633 is made with more bits from Kelly and some bits from my collection (like the brass bookmark on the end and an earring I bought at a Paris flea market last spring) that I’ve been saving for something special.
Key 1634 is made from a squished piece of metal I found while biking this summer, pen nibs from Paris, and more pieces from Kelly and my collection of goodies. Sometimes I find that the most beat up road bits make the best keys!
