Skeleton Key to my Heart

I'm often asked what the key I wear around my neck belongs to. Honestly, I really wish I knew. If I could uncover the stories behind all of these keys, I can only just imagine how it might make for a fantastic adventure novel.

As it is, all I can say is that I found these relics at a lower-Haight garage sale. Actually, just about all of the materials for these necklaces were rummaged from various garage sales; including the chains, ribbons and buttons.

They were inspired by necklaces I saw at a crafts fair hosted by Thee Parkside sometime last year. I made them for three different, very special lady friends (one of whom is my 19-year-old sister) as birthday presents.

I also made one for myself. Sorta like a friendship bracelet, I suppose. Somehow we're all connected, though I wouldn't say it's through jewelry...
