Silvertone Antique Typewriter Keys - 13mm
Well, quality on these is down from my last order
I had ordered these years ago in the brasstone, and they looked legit old. These ones look quite 'new', in the manufactering. The numbers are printed on paper under the resin, and my set is kinda pixelated, making sure you know it was computer made. Also, the all important "Shift" key in my set has a large lumpy bubble in it, rendering it trash. Disapointed this time around.

just the right 'type'
I bought an antique gold version of the typewriter keys a number of years ago with a group of other beads. I have been waiting for the right combination of elements to come together before making something special. The "Found Object" look is what I have been waiting for. I used the keys as links between different styles of chain for whimsical necklace finished with a chain tassel. I am quite pleased with the outcome!
