Hand crafted key earrings in bronze with brown patina. Sterling silver hooks. Handmade in New Zealand. I have given them a nice brown patina. 1.4 inches long.
The story behind these earrings is that my grandfather owned a 5 acre free range chicken farm from 1936 to about 1966, when I was 7 years old, and he had many sheds on his farm that had the old fashioned padlocks that were pure style and quality of construction. Anyhow I have all of the keys he used for these locks and I have this one cast in bronze and silver.
Even at the age of 54 my memories of visiting my grandfather back when I was 7 are a very vivid and a happy time for me. I loved visiting his farm and I share his love for birds and animals. He cared for his birds very much and gave them a good life. He was very much against battery farmed chickens.
He was also a keen breeder of champion chickens and ducks. He won many awards for his birds. His certificates remained in their tubes and he never displayed them. I got one framed and have displayed here for you to see.
He was a wonderful man.
