Vintage Inspirations- Update

I am slowly weening myself from semi-precious stone to create with a more organic feel, and yeah the economy and environment has alot to do with it as well. I love my stones don't get me wrong..but i am taking them down a more metaphysical road, and catching up with my wood and more eco- friendly ideas.

In the meantime, after watching some old black and white classic. I got inspired by all the old typewriters and created these two pieces:)

All of the wooden keys featured in these pieces were Handcrafted by porkchopshow.etsy.com Photos of vintage and antique typewriter and metal keys were applied to 1/8" thick baltic birch board, laser cut, then painted black on reverse side. These would be the perfect eco-friendly gift for a special friend, whether it's their first initial or the first letter of how you feel about them:)

SOLD!!
<<<<Yay, I made these earrings on Thursday and sold a pair TONIGHT! I am so happy;) I just re listed another pair of A letter earrings. but I have two sets all 5 of the standard English vowels, and 21 individual consonants.


I made this awesome necklace tonight:


In this necklace a 1.1/2" vintage key and W letter key i added an old 8mm vintage faceted embossed amber glass heart that was part of an old vintage chain my mom gave me from some old jewelry she was going to throw away. After squealing "NO!, recycle it" i took it and hand wire-wrapped all three pieces together and added them to a single gold chain. My intention was to create another personalized gift, a " Key To My Heart" concept.

I bought these poetry word beads thursday from
