I love old keys and padlock shapes and images and I love to try and use this theme in my Jewellery too!
These earrings are an wooden MDF shape of key lock plates - also called Escutcheon - in a decorative rectangular shape with a key hole in the centre. Escutcheon is an old French word derived from the Latin scutum, meaning a shield. It is an architectural item that surrounds a keyhole or lock cylinder and for these I have turned these shapes into a pair of earrings.
I’ve used a form of embossing enamels called Wonder Crystals, in an amazing colour combination called Goldstone - bronze, brown and black combination of colours in a swirling marbled mix. Wonder Crystals are also weather resistant!
I have hand painted the reverse with rose gold metallic artists quality acrylic paint, added a couple of coats of clear varnish to add extra protection to these handmade beauties.
The Escutcheon shape itself measures approximately 4 cm and with the rose gold plated earring hooks. The total drop is about 5cm with a width of 1.5cm.
They will come to you in a UK made, recycled card jewellery box in natural Kraft card brown, ready to gift or to keep for yourself! Perfect for that lover of locks, keys and all things vintage and Steampunk!
I just love old keys and all that kind of thing and I also collect them, when I see them for sale! Finding a set of MDF keys, padlocks and these key lock plates or Escutcheons was the perfect medium to create some fun jewellery!
