Goth keychain collection

I have recently started making goth items, and have decided to work on keychains. Here is my collection so far:

Having made the original from clay, it was not too hard to sand cast them. The metal used is non-lead environment friendly solder, the type used by plumbers. A special chemical creates the darkening effect. I hope that soon I will be able to present bronze items.

And here is the full collection, updated with a new item, and a better background:


Christian Cross

My first welding work ever, a christian cross. The cross and the Christ figure were cast separately and were soldered together with a solder gun:

They were soldered in three places, and I am particularly pleased, as the soldering work came out sturdy, paving the way for more such work.
