I don’t know what this trend is about, but I’ve been crocheting keys.  It’s been months, and then I started seeing Tiffany ads featuring them.  Figured now’s a good time to get some of my creations finished and put them up for sale, right?

I crocheted these shapes after much trial and error – using a ring inside the top, using Tofutsies yarn.  Then I used some paints to add a little shine to them and enhance the metallic look.  I’m really pleased and had fun with this project.  Mixing up the beads, the paint, yarn and chain is what I love to do.  They’re for sale locally, but I just ordered some chain from Rings & Things so maybe I’ll have some at my Etsy shop in the future.

Crafters, Do you find yourself picking up on trends? or do you make trendy items intentionally?

  1. I'm hearing that folks can't comment... I think it has something to do with blogger and the security settings - third party cookies enabled usually works for me.
