This is one of my favorite skeleton key necklaces to date. Simple and classy and rustic at the same time.

I have been collecting old skeleton keys for years now and have been sort of saving this one because I love the small size. I knew I had to make it special! I just learned this very cool knot that looks like two pieces of leather but is just one continuous length. I also found and added some bright etched Sterling rondelle tube beads for some sparkle. The necklace is finished with sterling silver cord ends and a spring clasp, also sterling. Alternately, I could finish it with an adjustable knot, but it would end up about 24" rather than 28" as it is now.

The old iron key (it sticks to a magnet) is diminutive: only 1 1/8" long and 1/2" wide at the top. Maybe a key to a desk, jewelry box, or mailbox? I left the genuine antique patina, which has a bit of beautiful rust, and sealed it with a high quality microcrystalline wax.

The suede is a very soft deerskin in a dark chocolate color that I reserve for my favorites.

As always, your unique necklace will arrive quickly in a classy gift box complete with tag.

An occasional soak in warm soapy water (yes, except for soft/porous stones like turquoise, they are safe for showering, too!) will keep your item looking new, as will daily wear, which inhibits tarnish. For orders $25+ I also include a small polishing cloth which can be used on dry pieces until it is completely black.

For shiny jewelry, I use a silver dip product for polishing. Just dip and then rinse in water. This will not remove black lettering.

If the text lightens (common inside of bracelets), fill in the letters with a Sharpie. Best hack ever! Wipe off the excess ink while it is still wet and sand off remaining residue to make the lettering pop again. I include sanding paper in every stamped bracelet order.
Exact wrist size is important for my bracelets! A 7-inch bracelet only works on a 6.75 inch wrist if it is chain. One with 1-inch beads that is 7" long may only fit a 5" wrist. So please send your exact wrist circumference if you are ordering a bracelet and want to love it a long time!
