These were perfect for the art project I was working on

great for jewelry
I love these for steampunk, vintage and industrial chic jewelry. I didn't mind that the holes are sometimes off-center, gives a casual look. These are so much cheaper than real typewriter keys and a lot lighter too!

nice keys for the price
These are great. I attatched them to the cufflink blanks.

Disappointed in drilling
I was excited to find these charms, and thought about using them to make earrings or a bracelet. When I opened the package, I discovered they were drilled with 4 holes, so a bracelet would need to be double-strung, with some kind of spacer between. As I strung them, I discovered the face of the key was not aligned with the holes in the charm, so the keyface is not consistently upright. This really disappointed me! They are not appropriate to make a drop earring either because of the way the holes are drilled. They will be better with a glued-on backing.

Very unique and realistic looking
These are adorable, very unique and realistic looking. I also received only #s and would have liked some letters. Now, I am looking for typewriter charms. Maybe Oriental Trading can find some to sell ??

OK but there are some things they don't tell you
Overall, I think these are a good value for the money. However, you should note that 1) they are one-sided; the backs are hollow and ugly, 2) there are four very large holes in each one, and 3) the holes are NOT CENTERED on the image, so if you think you are going to hang this on a headpin or bail and have it hang right side up you are mistaken.

These are super cute and fun. I have been looking at type writer key jewlery and its kind of expensive. These (from what I looked at) were a good price and I enjoyed getting to make my own jewlery with them. However, there are two sets of holes in each bead, the holes are kind of large and on two of my beads the hole wasn't through on the other side.

Great product. Well made and has 4 holes in each key that you can put thread/rope through. Only complain is that I received only numbers. It would have been nice if there was a mix of letters and numbers or at least have the choice of buying certain sets like A-L, M-U, etc.
