Skeleton Key meets glass
It's nothing new to the glass world, but It's new to me. I bought some old skeleton keys so I can add my lampwork beads. I have always loved these keys. They are so artistic and come in so many shapes and sizes. I tend to lean on the side of preservation and keeping antique treasures in their original glory, so it was a tad unnerving to take these beautiful keys to the flame. Heck, if the bead doesn't look good, at least I can crack it off and start over with the key as good as new.
