When I realized I soon had a special, milestone birthday coming up on the calendar, I thought about something sweet that I could make as a little extra and thoughtful gift. A key symbol sprang to mind because it is a traditional symbol for reaching adulthood here in the UK. I could have cut out a suitable shape from gold card but I wanted something more lasting so picked up my Perler beads.
Keys are symbols associated with other meanings to such as romance and giving your heart over to someone as well as with moving into a new home. So this is a fun project that can be made and given for any number of occasions. The design is my own and if you work with the standard sized fused beads, it makes a finished product that is about as long as a small hand. I hope you have fun with this project.
