Whimsy Wednesday! A Key, A Heart and A Ring!

Hello Hello! 
Welcome to Whimsy Wednesday! 
It was a stormy night and a bit of a rainy day for me today.  This always encourages me to be a little sluggish, but I did create some new goodies!
Let me show you! 
The first creation is an experiment with smaller diameter memory wire to create a wrapped ring! I'm pleased with how it came out and excited to share it with you!
Title: Forest Magic
Ingredients: Swarovski crystals, Czech glass, memory wire

I hadn't had much chance to work with this diameter of memory wire and I love playing with material that allows simple, multiple layers that give a lush look! I love the greens and the focal of the iridescent leaf. I hope this shines through in the photo! 

Title: As Yet Unkown 
Ingredients: Carnelian, vintage chain, lead-free pewter, metal. 
This key has been languishing for a while, waiting for the rest of the elements to fall into place. I originally paired the key with another chain, yet as I played with the vintage chain of gold and copper tones with the key, I fell in love with how the rich, warmth of the copper accented the fire in the carnelian. The perfect idea for the clasp was the copper-toned heart charm clasped with the gold-toned hook, continuing the metallic theme through from the chain. Simple, yet elegant! YAY! 

These will be available in my Etsy shoppe no later than Friday and I will certainly have them available for adoption this weekend at the Bean Factory Artist Market! Details are below!
