{Skip the KEY, Add a CHAIN}

I love creative jewelry. I am also a fan of adorable key chains that stores like Coach sell. So here I go exposing one of my favorite best kept secrets. This past summer, I fell in love with this nautical bangle and had to have it...I also quickly discovered that there was a matching key chain! I realized (or was it my resourceful mother?) that I would like to wear the fantastic charms from the key chain on my person rather than on my handbag. Time to break out the pliers. From a box of unused jewelry, I found a silver rope chain that had been a no use to me before gift and started construction. After my experiment was over, I was sold. I have since created two more necklaces using similar key chain charms and love the fact that they are one-of-a-kind pieces. Can't justify dishing out green for pricier key chains? Hint: outlets rock.
