I’m a really big fan of vintage jewelry. Most of the time I admit I would never wear it, but I really like the way it looks. The other day, I was at Michael’s (of course, it’s like my second home), and found these really cute key charms. They’re not really vintage keys, obviously, but they’re close enough in appearance. I wanted to make something with them, but the craft I planned on making this week didn’t work out like I’d hoped. I didn’t measure properly and the key was too big for the holder. Anyway, I won’t go into too much detail on that one because I plan to use the remaining keys to do it right someday.
So, I made the jewelry I thought I’d never wear and surprised myself!
This one is quick and easy! It takes longer to pick the charms you want than it does to make the necklace. Sometimes that’s a good problem to have.
Vintage Necklace Materials
You can find all of this at Michaels or any other craft store.
Step 1 and only
Attach your jump rings to your charms and slide the charms onto the necklace.
I chose the key first. Then rounded hammered charm to match the key. Then the silver bird charm to compliment the gems in the key.

I did something similar by grouping together the various necklaces given to me by my daughter over the years. It’s such an easy, yet fun project!
That’s a good idea! I like combining the old into the new. Especially if it’s something of sentimental value. Do you wear it?
Often because I miss her now that she’s all grown up and living her own life.
Makes sense. Lovely idea 🙂
Nice ‘findings’ 😉
