SKELETON KEYS, WHAT TO DO WITH THEM?

Ten Tiny Antique Skeleton Keys - Custom

If you're like me, you love the old skeleton keys, but what exactly do you do with them?  I've seen them framed, added to shadow boxes, added to personal key chains, and used in mixed media artwork.  Have you ever thought of jewelry?  I surfed Etsy and found a wonderful assortment of handmade jewelry, all using the skeleton key.  Here are a few examples of the talent I found.

NECKLACES

AND NOT JEWELRY BUT FUN!

I hope this has given you lots of new ideas for using those great skeleton keys.  If you're not into making your own jewelry, then go shopping in these Etsy shops!  Just have tons of fun!

Whats up this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or
if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
