Vintage Typewriter Jewelry - Mystery Heart of Glass - Typewriter Key Laundry Pin

Authentic vintage typewriter key jewelry with a twist.

I've made this brooch with one of my most unusual vintage typewriter keys. It is from an antique Imperial machine which had printed celluloid circles in lieu of card and glass.
These keys have a beautiful feel to them, 60 years of use has made them smooth and shiny.

A small black enamelled heart hangs from the spiral of the laundry pin and beneath this, a fabulous patina'd brass pendant from the 1970s with a big question mark cut out of it now carries a tiny glass heart lightcatcher.
I make these using paper from very old books, the word under this one is : february.
It is just legible at the moment, but over the next few days the special glaze will react with the paper turning this into what could be taken for a heart-shaped butterfly wing, iridescent and quite magical. I can't guarantee the word will even be seen, but you and I will know that it's there.

This piece is very tactile. Despite the patina and age marks on the symbol, it feels velvety to the touch and throws out rainbow hues in the light.

It measures 2½" x 2½".



All jewelry purchased will be sent to you in a drawstring pouch ♥
