This necklace has a beautiful vintage key from one of those typewriters that were used early to mid last century. You can read the full story about the typewriter key collection here on my blog: http://karlita.be/pages/background-on-the-typewriter-key-jewelry
This fiber art necklace is part of a crossover project with my other shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/karlita . It is made of felt, crochet and of course a typewriter key. The organic form contrasts beautifully with the industrial typewriterkey.
The typewriter key measures 0,55 inches and is authentic and decades old so expect some wear on it - that said, this one is in excellent condition, as you can see from the pictures. This is the key '8.
The necklace is made of thick grey felt and has an organic form which measures about 6 inches wide and 1,8 inches at its highest. The felt is backed with fabric so it can't itch your skin.
The neckace, including the chain, measures 18 inches all round.
To be honest, this necklace is unusual so it's just not for everyone. But if you are a person that wants to make a fashion statement and get noticed, than this is for you!
I always take actual pictures of the item that is listed – so you will get the exact item as pictured here. The last picture is an example of an advertisement of a vintage typewriter from that era (but not necessarily from the brand that the keys are from).
