Heather, that is the most freakin' awesome thing! I have no talent for that sort of thing...I think I lack the patience! I have done some wire wrapping to great results but I don't do it often enough to attempt a key. A skeleton key! I am squealing!

I have some of Matthew Nix' work and it is really whimsical. Check out his tutorials here:

My favorite is by a lady named Perri. Better known as "Shaktipaj" in the wire world. Her tutorial for the perriwinkle bead cap found in her Etsy shop here

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25803793
