A customer requested this item, a smaller version of my SweetHeart Keychain.

It could be used as a keychain, zipper pull, ID for totes, backpacks, etc.

These are done in Zebrawood and Maple. They are double-sided with a name on each side. The customer who inspired this wanted a “His and Hers”, so the pictures include both.

I am offering these in any two of the woods I have in stock. I currently have Oak, Maple, Walnut, Mesquite, Zebrawood, Purpleheart and Rosewood.

They measure approximately 3/8 by 3/8 inch by however many letters are involved. The ones pictured are about 3” with the screw eye and 1/2” ring. The dime is for size reference.

Because of their small size, they are more labor intensive than my standard keychains.

There are no dyes or stains used to change their natural color. I finish each with three coats of clear lacquer.

I always enjoy your work. These are, like, tiny … and still have the same detail and clarity. Very impressive.

Thanks for the comments. In addition to wearing my reading glasses to do these, I am finding I need more light on the subject than I used to.
