Brass Rose Goddess Key
This handcrafted original design started with a three inch brass alloy skeleton key with a delicate brass rose stamping featuring multiple layers of varying petals surrounding the 6mm turquoise bead, firmly affixed with antique brass wire. That wire carries the design down the shaft of the key , adding three 3mm Artisan Czech druk beads. The key dangle, secured with brass wire and findings features the Cheryl Goddess bead as well as small Czech fire polished and Trica beads. (Click on Additional Info below for complete description of Goddess bead size, color and finish detail).
The boho key is suspended on a 24-inch brass alloy chain with a lobster clasp, but the generous opening of the brass alloy bail at the top of the key makes it simple to substitute your favorite length of chain, silk, or leather to match your mood or outfit.
The Artisan Goddess bead used here is produced in small batches in a second- generation Mom & Pop bead making shop in Jablonec. Their exclusive mold is based on the remarkable Vestonicka Venusa -- the oldest ceramic known to man and one of the earliest human expressions of art for art's sake.
Of course, we love her and all she has come to represent over the past 24,000 years. In celebration of the real world Goddess in us all, 20 percent of all Goddess sales though June 2018 are distributed each month to a charity chosen by one of 12 contemporary Godessses.

DESIGN DETAILS ON EACH GORGEOUS GODDESS BEAD
Because of the small-batch, artisan-made nature of these beads the density and placement of the finish varies from bead to bead, All of the Goddess beads are one inch (25 mm) high and slightly under a half inch (10mm) at their widest point.
The metallic paints used for outline are somewhat exaggerated (for example the color and density of the gold paint is actually no different between Anne and Tina and the bronze wash and detail on Penny , Jennine and Chris is also identical).
The beads are heat-sealed to preserve detail and eliminate worry of paint chipping or peeling. They are glass and will not fare well with a hammer blow or drop on an unrelenting surface from a distance. (Although we did retire that particular bead, we have also discovered they will survive our Lab's digestive system leaving both fully intact. )
