Welcome to my blog! When I started this blog it was all about wire crochet jewelry. I fell in love with the first piece I saw and I had to learn how. I was "hooked"!

"Destinee" Necklace with a Skeleton Key

Like many of you, I have a great fondness for skeleton keys. My keychain itself is a large skeleton key and on that keychain are two skeleton keys that have a lot of sentimental value to me. One belonged to the front door of my childhood home and one belonged to my grandmother. I have carried these for years.

For this necklace I used a mix of antique silver beads on silver wire which combined with the key makes a very monochromatic color scheme. I added a red Swarovski crystal heart which (I think) was just the right touch.

~Today's Quote~

I had closed the door upon my heart
and wouldn't let anyone in
I had trusted and loved only to be hurt
but that would never happen again
I locked the door and tossed the key
as hard and as far as I could
My heart was closed for good
Then you came into my life and
made me change my mind
just when I thought that
tiny key was impossible to find
that is when you held out your hand
and proved me wrong
inside your palm was the
Key to My Heart
You had it all along
