sterling silver, vintage typewriter key, typewriter key necklace
This is a vintage typewriter key initial C necklace set in solid silver on a silver belcher chain with a strong 8mm silver trigger catch fastening, stamped 925.
When I’m not making jewellery I spend quite a bit of time dismantling typewriters. This key is from a Royal Portable typewriter from the early 1930s. Graphics like this have a timeless appeal. Manual typewriters belong to a more mechanical age and yet these keys look really contemporary.
I set the entire typewriter key in a handmade silver bezel, using the same technique used for setting stones, a rub-over setting. The charm is 6mm deep.
The reverse is polished silver.
Clean with a silver cloth or just a soft cloth. Typewriter keys are very sturdy and have survived perfectly intact after much use during their 80+ year life but were never designed to be completely waterproof.
