Summer Wind Keychain

About this design:

Designed by Andrea P.
This wood pendant is from Lima's new artist Summer Wind Art. I thought I would make a whimsical keychain to display how versatile these wood pendants can be. I absolutely love the bright color combination.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

The tools you will need are your favorite strand of recycled glass, one Summer Wind Art pendant, a large lobster clasp, a 2" head pin, tassel, one 8mm jump ring, one 4-5mm jump ring and flat nose and round nose pliers to attach the jump rings.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Attach the large 8mm jump ring to the wood pendant, with the jump ring still open attach that to the lobster clasp. Then close the jump ring with your pliers.
Step 2:
Use your 2" head pin and slide 6 of the recycled glass pebbles onto it, use your round nose pliers to create a loop at the top. With the remaining wire wrap it around just under your loop.
Step 3:
Attach your tassel and the recycled glass headpin to the same 4mm jump ring and attach it to the lobster clasp. Tighten the jump ring with your pliers. Now you can enjoy your keychain!!

    Ultra adorable Andrea! What a cool, clever way to showcase the SummerWindArt pendants. I would only worry that the keys would scratch the design off on the pendant, or is it really well sealed??

    Absolutely wonderful idea! This is such an easy to make ultra cute key chain idea. They certainly should be easy to find in the loaded purse.

    Just want to answer the question regarding the design scratching off..this piece is well sealed. I hooked onto keys then onto my purse for a pop of color and its holding up great, no scratches at all, I am pretty rough on my purse:) I love how it looks hanging off the side of my purse.
