Romantic-bespoke-jewellery Filter: How do I put a key on a necklace?
posted by anonymous to clothing, beauty, & fashion (8 answers total) 1 user marked this as a favorite
So I've got an old vintage key. It looks like this.
, slightly more than an inch long. I want to put it on a necklace, or incorporate it in a necklace somehow. Two catches: I know nothing about how to make or order jewellery, I want the key to still be usable to open locks.
So, what's the best way to do this? Should I try and do it myself or get a jeweller to do it for me? I'm willing to spend up to $100. It seems that threading a key through onto a necklace would be easy enough, but I don't want it to look homemade. Presumably there's some sort of link that could attach the key to the necklace. As for the necklace itself, I was looking for something similar to the stuff on this site.
Any thoughts, as you can probably tell from the haphazard questions, I'm a bit out of my depth here, please help!
