Solid Bronze Etched Keychain Fob with Solid Brass key ring Approx 2" long (4.8 cm.)
This is an especially great gift if you have the need for a personalized keychain using something other than those characters available in a set of stamps of 26 letters. I can take your ideograph or business logo, and convert it to a line drawing suitable for etching. While the keychains are definitely hand cut and finished, the etching itself is done by my computer guided machine before assembly and firing, so it is ideal when you need multiples. The cost is divided into two parts -
Art adaptation and set up - this will vary according to the design, but will usually run from 45 to 125 dollars. A clear black and white image that I can trace will be on the low end; a greyscale image that I would need to completely redraw would be towards the high end.
This same technique is also available in piece in sterling silver, so please contact me for a quote if you'd rather go that route.
The second part of the cost would be the production of the keyring itself. For a size similar to the one pictured - 1" (2.4 cm) wide x 2" (4 .8 long) the cost would be 45.00 each. Since these are completely hand formed, other shapes are easy to do. This is a great idea for a unique corporate gift that is hand wrought, and not punched out in a huge factory! It would also make a lovely keepsake of a family reunion weekend or other special gathering.
Please allow two to three weeks for production. Send me those designs and solve your gift giving dilemma!
