About

Artistic family and friends collaborated on a high quality, fun and unique gift that is also low cost

It all started after an artisan handbag maker gave my wife leather off-cuts to use (so its new but "reclaimed" leather as otherwise it would be waste).

Initially we decorated clothes and Steampunk outfits with leather and stamped copper.

My student fashion designer daughter, Chloe, next came up with the design and the concept then handed manufacture to me!

As is the case for most artisan products, its a slow process for something that looks simple:
- The leather is cut into strips manually.
- The leather is then shaped by eye and punched with holes.
- I spend a lot of time researching funny, on-trend or practical phrases!
- The aluminum blanks are made by an artisan metal supplier in California, to my design.
- The blanks are placed on a steel block and the phrase is hand stamped using steel hand stamps hit just right with a 1 lb stamping hammer.
- The indents are painted;
- The key ring is attached and the finished blank is attached to the leather with studs

This emphasis on every step being handmade means that each key chain is unique and no two will exactly match!
