Men’s Hardware Keyring
by Joy Jones.
(Washington DC, USA)
I got the idea for this keyring while shopping for lamp parts at my local hardware store. The base is a brass lamp nipple.
Then I attached brass washers (screwed on and secured with instant glue) and capped the end washers with steel fender washers for contrast. The end caps are chrome-plated lamp finials; I used my Dremel to drill a hole in one end.
I completed the piece by knotting a length of distressed leather on a keyring, threading the ends through the drilled end cap, then screwing that end cap on the lamp nipple. This makes a goodlooking, contemporary, very masculine accessory.
