I always tend to find Secret Compartment keychains rather dull, they un-screw to hold a note or money and can be covered in beadwork –I have never given one as a gift as I never felt they had much wow factor. Hopefully we have now changed this! After having several requests for patterns for them we set about thinking up a more exciting Secret Compartment Keychain, ideal for a Christmas present gift – and this is the result!
On first looking the receiver will see 3 Christmas Characters, Santa, Snowman and Reindeer bordered with a galvanized gold and holly garland border. However, the internal compartment is not the only secret in this key chain! The bead work can be spun around to mix up the characters - why not add Reindeer legs to Santa or swop a Snowman Body onto the Reindeer! You can come up with some pretty crazy concoctions - just like those toys you used to play as a child! There are 27 character combinations to create, and if the response is anything like the ones we have had, the receiver will have a childish smile as they spin it around to find them!
This Secret Comparment Key Chain bead pattern is made using Japanese Miyuki size 11 Delica beads and peyote or brick stitch can be used. It is assumed the beader will be familiar with either Brick, Peyote or Both. Peyote and Brick stitch bead instructions are available free on www.threadabead.com. Please note the pattern may not work with any other size and type of beads.
There are 15 colours in total and the finished beadwork is approximately 7 cm x 4 cm.
The bead pattern supplied is 9 pages and includes a colour chart of suggested delicas, a colour pattern and a numbered coloured pattern.
