    thanks so much for the tips; it helps a lot in my sculpture process

    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?

    Hey Daniel, these were pretty small and quite light.

    Awesome! Gold and silver colours together! So, who wears the key earrings and pendant? ;-)

    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.

    I never thought of that! Great point.
