Built Ford Tough!

About this design:

I found an old (Model T?) Ford key on Ebay and the rest of the piece just came together around it with lapis to match the blue of the Ford logo and mechanical-looking components.


Lapis roundells and rounds, antique silver-plate chain, toggle clasp, and components.

    This is fantastic — rugged and fun! What a clever idea! Now I need to look through my old keys (the ones people can never bring themselves to throw away…..just in case….)! :D
