~Keys / Locks~

Historically, Keys have been used for everything from winding pocket watches to switching on the first two-way radios! The most common symbolic meaning used for the key is its power to unlock the door to the heart, opportunity or adventure. Companies like PF Corbin (known for their beautifully engraved “Carded keys”) or the Tower company (1865 founder John Tower) who was responsible for the first metal handcuff, remind us that the key to life is making sure you have the right tools before approaching opportunity.

This 1888 Design is a *One of a Kind.  

After each artifact or specimen has been discovered we send it through a careful restoration process before being used in one of our designs. If a particularly unique patina is found to add design value to an artifact, it's preserved & sealed to ensure its longevity & protection. 

These artifacts have already proven they can stand up against the riggers of time, but if at any point your pendant does need a little cleaning, a gentle scrub with soap & water should do the trick. 

"There is nothing more precious than a gift of time."
