Diza - Skeleton Key, Wire and Resin Necklace


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. 

The pendant is 3 1/2" across at its widest and 6 1/2" from the top of the circle to the bottom. The triangle resin and woven portion is 3 3/4" long with a 3" Skeleton Key. I've poured a layer of tinted blue resin to mimic stained glass into the bottom section. 

A large, cobalt Vintage 20mm Swarovski Crystal hangs between the 1 1/2" diameter Silver Circle and the lower triangle. The Necklace has a 28" Sterling Silver rolo chain. All Pieces are hand woven and bench made by me, Margaret Aden, in my Arizona Studio.
