What an amazing artifact this is, a very ancient looking iron key from old Tibet.   It is a rarity; it came from an old collection, and it looks like it has been around the block a few times.  Made from solid iron, the surface is pitted and corroded as an asteroid, and the shape is compelling and beautiful.  What stories does it hold from past days?

I created an equally strong looking strand for the key with very wabi-sabi bronze keshi pearls alternating with brass beads from Nepal and Africa.  Three wrought iron African trade beads are among them, and at the juncture with the key there is a handmade fine silver nugget bead that I made, surmounted by a heavily oxidized sterling silver wire wrap.  

A wonderfully primitive piece and a unique opportunity to become keeper of a key to old Tibet.

SIZE:  The antique key measures 3 3/4"" x 1 3/8" x 3 /16", or 96mm x 35mm x 9mm.  The necklace with pendant measures 20 3/4" or 53cm, from the back of your neck to the base of the pendant when worn.

CARE:  You may rinse this in cool water to clean.  Gently blot dry.  

PRESENTATION: This necklace will come to you beautifully giftwrapped.  See my shop policies below for details.
