Default So How Cool Are Typewriter Key Bracelets?

I absolutely LOVE them! I have no idea how one would go about making one,
but I have an old typewriter in the attic... Bwahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaa~

Don't have one but couldn't you just pop the key, set in a silver bezel and
link them? Another idea would be to take the keys off, file the back smooth
and glue a finding to the back. Maybe one of those glue on cab bracelets?

I like the silver bezel idea. Too bad I don't have a clue about how to do
it. I'm slowly but surely accumulating the stuff I need to work with metal.

I have 3 necklaces that are made from antique switchboard buttons (numbers).
They are so cool. I don't like the necklaces -- just the beads -- so I'm
planning to take them apart.

I love pretty much everything there, not just the typewriter stuff.
