The pendant is 2 7/8" across at its widest and 3" from the top corners to the bottom. The shield shaped Silver frame has tinted green resin and an entrapped Vintage Skeleton Key with the number "2" etched into it. Vintage Swarovski Crystals in Emerald Green and Comet Argent. She hangs 32" in total with the sterling silver oval link chain. Overall, the piece has a slight oxidation, allowing the texture of the woven wire to be seen.
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.
