A dainty silver key hangs on this delicate silver chain – a beautiful present for a loved one, or a little reminder for ourselves that whatever challenges we may face, we already hold the key to the solution close to our hearts.

I modelled this pendant after a real key that I found at an antiques market in Burgundy (France), not far from where my studio is based. I love trawling through the piles and piles of old, discarded tools and junk (though I believe the official term is “vintage home decor”) until I find a little treasure – like this beautiful key. I love the simplicity of it, and the little baroque decoration that reminds me of stained glass windows.

I cast this key by hand in my studio, using sterling silver only. I then polish it by hand to give it a beautiful shiny finish. At every stage of the process, I do my best to preserve its original shape and texture – you can see that it's not perfectly smooth, just as the original key shows its age and history with every little bump and scratch on it.

The little key is around 3cm (1.2 in) long and I will finish it with a delicate sterling silver chain; please choose the length of chain you would like during checkout.

As with all my sterling silver pieces, I have hallmarked this pendant with my own unique mark – a tiny rose and my initials. In accordance with French law, this hallmark is registered with the national assay office, which is a guarantee of quality and ensures that the origin of this piece will always be traceable.

The ring is unique, very interesting to look at. Its craters remind me of lichen textures. The ring arrived matte with a polishing cloth, I guess so the buyer could choose the desired level of shininess herself. Had to spent quite some time polishing it, honestly I'd prefer to have gotten already polished ring, because the one I see in etsy product photo seems quite polished.

Awesome! Absolutely wonderful. I enjoyed this ring so much she helped make a men's trinity ring using this as an inspiration. Absolutely one of the best, friendliest, responsive, and talented sellers I ever encountered and the quality and workmanship is superior.I would give six stars if I could!!!
