I got into a kick recently with making beaded key chains, and I must have made about a dozen. Keeping true to my philosophy, none are identical, and as with all accessories I create, I try to keep each one unique. That’s not to say I won’t make my customers identical items if they want; my initial offerings are one-of-a-kind.
On the day that my mood was green, I created a key chain dubbed “Green Sparkle.” And, WOW! it’s green! It would look good around the Holidays , springtime, and all year ‘round, in fact.
I took a green colored split ring to coordinate with the green beads that I used. A cluster of green glass faceted beads form the focal of this bright and sparkly key chain. One of the beads I hand wrapped in silver plated wire. A green split key ring makes this a fashionable accessory.
What is good about making key chains is that anything goes. It doesn’t matter too much on color, bead type or size, or even the amount of beads placed on the chain.
Each key chain is created by hand sorting beads by style, shape, and color. No two items are every alike! The key ring is approximately 1″ in diameter, with an overall chain length of 4″. Pretty and lightweight, these are functional, fashionable, and would make good housewarming gifts, birthday gifts, new car (or driver’s license) gifts, or as a treat for yourself.
