My First Key Bead



I got this cool key bead mandrel from Jelveh, and made my first key bead the other day. I can't wait to make more - it's fun! I used the worst rusty key I had, in case I messed up because the key is not round but flat; it came out great for a first try!

Thank you everyone! I had fun making it! Renate, I am definitely going to make more! My only problem will be I only have one key mandrel so I can only do one in a sitting - I may have to buy more key mandrels!

'Turned out great' is an understatement. I love it, especially in pink... very yin/yang :-)
