Happy St Patricks Day Key Necklace

Its been a long cold winter and I have been busy in the studio making jewelry and planning for the upcoming show this Summer and Fall. The ideas keep coming so I keep creating and this was one that just came to me in the last few weeks so I thought I would share.
It all started when I was think about shamrocks and how could I make one that would be very simple but unique. I then the ace of clubs came to my mind
I thought about cutting a few cards, but I knew I would never be able to cut it out that perfect. So I broke the shape down in to circles.
So I cut a few circles with my hole punch from some Encyclopedia Paper and transformed them into Shamrocks.
First the Leaves of the Shamrock and then the stem, which is just a sliver of paper.
Coat with a few coats of Mod Podge and let dry and a sealer for the top and it was done. 
I attached a bead to the bottom and it was ready to adorn a Skelton Key.
A lovely St Patricks day Necklace
I made a few versions of  the necklace based on the color of the key.
Both turned out lovely...
Perfect to Celebrate the Holiday!
