A wire wrapped key of bronze and jewelers brass. Garnet beads.

----------------------------------------------

A gift for a darling friend of mine. Egads, I hope I'm never insane enough to want to knit in 26ga bronze ever again; I can still remember the screaming.

Also, this key is quite large, measuring 8cm. Certainly much larger than modern keys.

wonderful ...I was just saying to my Partner (before I read the description) that it must have driven you insane to do the dreamcatcher type weave in the middle.... Lovely

Thank you so much! That reminds me that I should take some time to work on more keys...

That would be great. I recently started collecting old skeleton keys(though I lost some in our last move) My goal is to eventually use them around a room like that little divider strip of wallpaper that goes above wainscoting.
