Vintage Skeleton Keys are little lost secrets. They're artifacts from a life we cannot see into, but a life we can imagine. It's what makes skeleton keys so intriguing and enduring. I've been obsessed with them since I was a little girl and my Grandmother first showed me her ring of skeleton keys. One skeleton key unlocked her cedar wardrobe, where garments, coats and hats, too fancy for a regular old closet resided.
This Oxidized Silver Woven Pendant with Stainless Steel Rollo Chain is 28" features two patinated, authentic vintage Skeleton Keys. I call this my Bow Tie style-- you know, for formal occasions and fun dinners out with friends. I call this style Exoskeleton, since the keys are the structure (my inner nerd is showing! It's so punny!).
The keys are right around 2 1/2" long. The pendant is 1 3/8" across the woven portion and 2" at the top. All Pieces are hand woven and bench made by me, Margaret Aden, in my Arizona Studio.
