What to get your friend who is young, adventurous and retiring…. but does not wear jewelry? Hmmm… well, some ladies local to me had this great idea that is taylor made for their friend: a keychain. She only carries her phone and her keys with her. Not even a purse. This keychain is in the shape of an S for her name. She plans on traveling so we incorporated the compass and it’s visible from either side. The stones are the birthstones of herself and family. The S is made from just huge 10 Gauge sterling silver so it’s very sturdy. I also made a J keychain a while ago and the person loved it because it would hang on things like the inside of her purse so she could find her keys easily. This S is the perfect shape for that as well.
I did have to anneal the metal often for it to take shape as it’s very thick. Enjoy the pics and I hope she enjoys her retirement!
