I suppose I could make up some story about how this fits the theme of vernal equinox but I'm not that creative. Actually, I'm fascinated with old keys and this is just something I wanted to make for myself to wear around on a long chain. It has plenty of imperfections but I'm sure as heck not doing it over. :D It's about two inches long and a little over an inch wide. The beads are teeny tanzanites.
I started my jewelry making journey in 2006 and it quickly took over my spare room and spread out into the living room. I was able to retire from my civil service job in August 2008 and I'm now able to focus on it full time.
