<p>thanks so much for the tips; it helps a lot in my sculpture process</p>
<p>Woah, I would never have guessed that locks might become such beautiful jewelry :) the silver and golden chains go together perfectly! One thing though - aren't the lock earrings too heavy for your ears?</p>
Hey Daniel, these were pretty small and quite light.
<p>Awesome! Gold and silver colours together! So, who wears the key earrings and pendant? ;-)</p>
<p>That would be my assistant.</p>
<p>They look awesome :)</p>
<p>Thanks Passion!</p>
<p>Nice designs. I'm glad to see you used a separate closure for fastening the neck chain together. Using the lock itself as a fastener is potentially very dangerous and would create a real danger of choking or hanging if the chain gets caught on something.</p>
<p>I never thought of that! Great point.</p>
