A crystal keychain is a great way to add some personalized bling to your key bundle. Crystal keychains can vary from uniquely shaped chunks of raw quartz to delicate figures enhanced with rhinestones. They can also include teardrops of colored glass, cut crystal with shapes etched into the flat side, or even layers of crystal with replicas of favorite photos caught in between.
The crystal, of course, is a decoration on a sturdy keychain that will keep even the most amazing key bundle organized and ready to use. A common design for the utilitarian part of the keychain is a split spiral key ring. The keys are slid under the split and pushed on around until they are securely on the ring. The decoration can be added the same way, or it can be fastened on with a clip or strap.
Crystal keychain decorations can be commemorative, or they can simply be something attractive that will appeal to the user. They can make a keychain distinctive and therefore easy to identify if you drop your keys in a department store. For some people, different colors and composition of raw crystals can have significance or special meanings. If you know the birthstone of a person for whom the keychain will be a gift, this can be a clue as to what crystals might be significant.
Crystals can be incorporated into macramé or paracord designs to give them a little-added interest. Imagine making a little owl with crystal bead eyes or a cat with a crystal bead collar for your favorite person. You could even consider a rhinestone studded mini-flashlight a crystal decoration, or a crystal decorated locator fob for the absentminded person who is constantly mislaying keys.
Keychains are the perfect place to display nicely sculptured charms that are distinctly personalized. These could range from a little fairy enhanced with rhinestones, a cat or a dog with a crystal collar or even your initials. Whatever it is, it should be something that will be significant to the person. Keys are something that are used frequently. A pretty keychain will be a daily reminder.
