I used a larger glass top typewriter key from an antique Royal typewriter... the key measures about ¾ of an inch in diameter.
I have disassembled the typewriter key and removed the glass top and placed an actual piece of a real credit card in place of the glass lens and then reassembled the key. The top of the key is the actual credit card so you can feel the texture of it, and because it is plastic I didn't need use the glass lens.
The key is mounted on an antique silver ox lace edge setting and is finished with an antique silver ox bail and an 24 inch ball chain.
I only use vintage antique typewriter keys from the early to mid 1900's.
Authentic Keys... Never No Reproductions.
Each key is gently cleaned preserving their natural patina. Since these keys are from vintage typewriters they have age appropriate imperfections... however, this only adds to the vintage look of this unique piece of jewelry from an Era past.
Your necklace will arrive to you in a gift box.
