When you're feeling down, make a key.
Said no one ever.
Except for me!
When I'm sad, I have a compulsive urge to create something. This key is one of such projects, and I actually took step-by-step pictures this time.
I got a bag of beads from a jewelry workshop that I went to at a public library, and in that bag were some turquoise beads, one of which I wrapped for the key. There was little preliminary considerations and planning for this; the head of the key was mostly free-handed. The bottom part was somewhat inspired by some online searches for a spark to set off my creative juices.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy this tutorial as much as I liked making this!
Step 1: Materials
- thick and thin wire (I used 20 and 26 gauge black-colored copper wire.)
- teardrop bead (or at least a bead that has a hole right through the middle)
- size 6 seed bead
- paper and pencil for sketching
