Well, I made my first items out of my home studio for my two uncles. They are keychains with an airplane and clouds and I made them in memory of my grandpa who was an avid flyer. He passed away last year after being very ill. I had made a pendant earlier for my mother with the same image. The propellor spins and my grandpa's initials are engraved in the back along with his birth and death dates. I enjoyed working on this project and thinking about my grandfather's life while I was making these keychains.
The keychains are both assembled using rivets and the individual metal pieces were hand-sawed by me. The backing is sterling silver and the airplane is copper.
