"Key To My Heart"

I wanted to make something special for Valentine's Day so I started looking through all my treasures. Some people might call it junk! I came across a group of old keys, not skeleton keys but just regular old small keys. I've seen skeleton keys used in necklaces before so I  wanted to use these old keys somehow. Then I remembered during a resin making fest, I had made some resin hearts cast from a mold. I dug them out and decided that I could attach them to the key and the best part is that the key acts as the bail for the necklaces.
