Metal Stamped Vintage Key Jewelry – Stamping GIVEAWAY

stamped metal key jewelry collection

I’ve been itching awhile to find something to do with vintage keys.  I’ve always wanted to try stamping on them, but was too worried about the hardness of the keys destroying the detailing of the metal letters.  So when Impress Art came out with new premium stamps manufactured especially for use on hard metals and stainless steel (they have a lifetime guarantee!) I had to give them a try.

Searching for the perfect key

keys

It’s kind of a funny story where all these keys came from. My husband’s Father was an antique collector and regularly attended antique auctions. One Saturday he came back from an auction with an enormous metal safe. When he got home and opened it, he realized there was a locked interior metal box way at the back – but he had no key.  So he kept buying keys and buying keys and buying keys, hoping to find the one that would open that interior safe.

Vintage keys can be really beautiful, but the keys I wanted to try and use were the plain ones.  Smooth and without ridges so they could be stamped down the long side.  I thought maybe they were a special type of key, maybe a trunk key or something specific like that.  But, the only name for them I found was “flat keys” which isn’t very exciting but at least the description rings true.

Vintage Stamped Key Jewelry Materials

stamped key materials

  • Premium Metal Stamping Set by Impress Art
  • Hammer
  • Stamping Block
  • Vintage flat Keys
  • Gilders Paste
  • Jewelry Chain
  • For the bracelet – about 9″ of chain (large enough that the lobster clasp will fit in it, so it will be adjustable) lobster clasp, 2 jump rings and a 2 hole punch by Impress Art

Cleaning the Keys

stamped key cleaning

To research cleaning the keys, I hopped on the internet.  Household vinegar kept popping up as the best solution so I gave it a try.  I soaked the keys for 30 minutes and it did clean the keys, but it didn’t remove the grime.  I was going for an aged look, but not really a grimy one.  I had just about chucked doing this project, until a couple of days later when I did some cleaning and found this bottle of Brasso under the sink. “Helps polish and protect most metals.” Huh.  So I tried it and it worked. I have no idea why Brasso was under our sink, but I’ve since determined that trying things for yourself is sometimes better than just using the internet.

To get a before and after cleaning comparison, in the 4th picture from the beginning the 3 keys on the lower right were cleaned using Brasso (which stinks pretty bad, so I opened a window) and the rest of the keys to the left were cleaned just using vinegar (which also stinks pretty bad).

Monogrammed Vintage Key Necklaces

I started with the monogram necklace first to get some practice stamping on the keys.

stamped-vintage-key-love

I trashed the next key entirely by not wacking it hard enough and then by wacking it too hard.  So after practicing a bit, I got my confidence back and stamped the word love on this key.  That’s my husbands initial on the front of the tiny key. On the other side of the tiny key is my initial.  (awwwww.)

Vintage Key Bracelet How-To

Here’s a quick tutorial on the key bracelet.

1.  Stamp your message

As I said above, you will have to hit these keys harder than most pendants. If you’ve never stamped before, hop on over to my tutorial Metal Stamping Tips + Tricks  for some suggestions on letter alignment and other stamping tips.

 2. Punch the hole

stamped key hole drill

This handy little drill by Impress Art punches holes through all types of metal including coins. With a pencil, mark where you want your hole.   Place the key inside the clamp and turn the screw clockwise.  The screw swivels down and pops out a little 1 /16″ sized hole.

3.  Patina the key

stamped key apply guilders paste

Using a Q-Tip, wipe Gilders Paste across the entire front of the key, making sure it fills all the stamped impressions.  Then, wipe it off with a soft cloth or paper towel.

4. Add chain and a jump ring

stamped key attaching jump ring

Cut a piece of chain about 9″ long.  Using jewelry pliers open a jump ring and attach the key and one end of the chain to the jump ring and then close.

5. Add a lobster claw

Open a jump ring, slide on a lobster claw to the other end of the chain and close the jump ring.

    I love how these keys came to you. I am always on the lookout for unusual keys to work with and tried stamping keys a few months back. I have had success with some but some are too hard to make impressions into. How great it is that there are stamps made to actually work on the harder metals. I can’t wait to try this on these keys. Keys are such a great symbol and come in such a great variety of sizes and shapes, just imagine all the great pieces you can make with them!

    Love your blog.
    I have really been wanting a metal stamping kit for quite awhile now, but it hasn’t been in my budget. So maybe it isn’t just a coincidence that I just saw this at the last minute to enter. Have already had alot of time thinking about what I could stamp and what I would stamp. The possibilities are endless !

    Hope I win :)
