“Key Keeper” Brooches
Custom brass letter jewelry
We’re in love with our “Key Keeper” collection – what isn’t there to like about lush dresses, gorgeous caps, and fancy accessories? We wanted to create something that was beautiful as well as practical, and we’re very happy with how it all came out. The collection is mostly inspired by generic medieval clothing and will look great at an SCA event, Renaissance Faire, or LARP.
This pair of brooches are made to gently hold a cloak together, resting boldly below your collar bones and bringing an ornate bit of brass to any costume. They consist of two main pieces with a strong chain in between them. The two main pieces can have a letter of your choice – perhaps the initials of your loved one, or your lord, or your own personal initials, it’s completely up to you how you decide to customize them!
These brooches were made in our jewelry workshop and have been custom-designed by our team of artists, who created a whole new alphabet just for use in this collection. The letters are inspired by gothic lettering and are made to make sure they look wonderful on jewelry. They have been laser-cut and finished by hand.
The brooches are a rounded square shape and consist of three layers. 3mm brass is clamped between two layers of 1.5mm brass on either side, creating a filigree look-through effect that makes them three dimensional and very pretty. They are assembled with strong little rivets that blend in with the rest of the edge. The chain that connects them is about 10cm long and is made of two types of wire.
These attach to your cloak or clothing with a spring-mounted safety pin. Please note that even though the pin strong, these are a little bit more decorative and not as robust as some of our forged-pin heavy-duty fibulas. If you’re looking for something to use for combat we would recommend something a bit stronger.
