E is for Eloquent in this evocative typewriter key pendant. Clack! Strike! Whir! The antique brass and iron Corona typewriter clatters as fingers scatter across the keys, pressing hard against each character to lift the bar that will emboss the page with a soft, inky letter. Long before keyboards were plugged into the towers of technology, writing was done on the mechanical keys of typewriters which streamed ink ribbons across a sheet of paper as one wrote. Jack Kerouac wrote on such a typewriter, just as the secretaries of Mad Men transcribe notes on a similar device. Recycled from such a typewriter, one can imagine that this key, this particular letter, might have belonged to Virginia Woolf, or James Joyce, or any other twentieth century writer you can dream up. Imagine the fingertip that caressed this particular key. What must she have written? What might he have had to say? Perhaps E is for "Expository" or the resounding "Echo" of the keys. Whatever the case of this letter, upper or lower, it will bring the writer in your life just what it means to have the Eruption of inspiration.

This listing is for the letter "E" typewriter key pendant set into a silver rope edged setting. This pendant is 18mm wide and will be hung from a silver bail on a 20" nickel silver ball chain. The lace edge setting pictured in the third photo is also available and if you would prefer it simply mention it in the "Notes to Seller" at checkout. An oxidized sterling silver box chain with a sturdy lobster claw clasp, pictured in the fourth photo, is available for $19.00 here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/90292275

All of my keys are authentic, vintage typewriter keys dating back to the early 1900's and they are all one of a kind and wonderfully unique. *They are not replicas*.

If you want more than one key on a chain, I would be happy to create a new listing for you. Just send me a ‘convo’ and we will work on it together. (I get back to your ‘convos’ lickety split!) Some people choose to have two or three dangling next to each other while others prefer to have them hang vertically. You choose the design!

If you don't see the letter or number you want in my shop or want a custom order, ‘convo’ me and I will let you know the availability, cost and turnaround time. Pieces are being completed daily.

***IMPORTANT***
You will not receive the exact typewriter key in the picture above as this is my first and is part of my personal collection. It will be the same key from another typewriter with similar aging and font which is pictured above. I try hard to keep these differences limited but the vintage nature of my items make them all one of a kind and special to YOU!

All items are sent in my signature teresadeleen gift box perfect for gift giving.
