This is a boro glass beaded skeleton key necklace that mixes old with new. It is comprised of an old steel skeleton key with a boro glass bead made in the flame of my torch directly on the shaft of the key. The bead is a lovely lavender. It measures 3/4 of an inch in diameter and 8 mm in width. It was made so that it does move on the key. The key measures 2 3/4 inches in length. From the key I have hung 2 glass beaded dangles, a vintage brassskeleton key a brass leaf charm and a vintage brass tag that has been handstamped PATIENCE and antiqued. The pendant is strung on a 24 inch copper chain with lobster clasp.
