A key chain made from a piano hammer... what a great accessory for your dedicated musician! Even the eyelet screw (if present) came from the action of a piano, so the only part that is not authentic is the key ring itself. This makes a great gift for a teacher, choir/band director, or student, as a token of appreciation for their many hours of teaching, conducting, and practicing.

Your color options are: teal, fuschia, green, aqua, red, purple, and BRAND NEW 1866 Steinway hammers.

Okay, technically, the Steinway hammers are not brand new---they are more than 150 years old! But they are new to my listing. :) The color of the felt is fuschia, but I'm listing them separately from the other fuschia hammers because of their age and construction. Twenty-six of the hammers had pre-drilled holes in them, into which I inserted the key ring. The hole is on the same side that I normally customize, which limits the space I am able to use, to you'll have to bear that in mind if you want customization. But I can still fit 2 or 3 initials on it.

This item is perfect for any musician or lover of music. Buy it for yourself or as a gift for the valued musician in your life. These pieces make excellent gifts for students, teachers, choir directors, band/orchestra conductors, or just someone who loves and appreciates music. It also works well when combined with other piano art to form an ensemble.

Gift wrapping is available at no extra charge. I can also replace the key ring with ribbon or string to make this a Christmas tree ornament.

NOTE ABOUT UPCYCLING: Because I use discarded pianos, many of which are 50-100 years old, each piece by nature will have some minor defects and show some signs of "wear and tear." They may also appear somewhat dirty, despite my knuckle-scraping efforts to get them clean. (Solid wood pieces get a sink bath, but felt pieces can only be scrubbed with a dry wire or nylon brush.) Not only that, but each piece varies slightly from the next, making your purchase a one-of-a-kind. Any parts that are not indigenous to the piano are purchased new; only the piano parts are upcycled.

Dimensions: approx. 4" (10cm) long x 1.5" (4cm) wide
Weight: approx. 1/4 oz

    Working with Angela on this customized "Middle C" gift made it feel special and from the heart. She happily answered my questions, and worked with me and my ideas!

    It was a gift for my husband for our anniversary. It was made of two pianos (like the two of us), 14 pieces (for our 14th anniversary), and with ivory keys (the traditional gift).

    It was definitely much easier than breaking down a piano to make something myself... which I was strongly considering! He really likes it, and was impressed that I was able to give the traditional (yet now unconventional) gift! Thanks so much!
