Welcome to the Vintage Key

I enjoy finding tattered objects that are no longer being used—things that can be given a new life with a new function but still maintain their integrity and the feel of a long-ago era from which they came. I take joy in creating smiles on peoples’ faces as my jewelry brings back fun memories of growing up, or of family heirlooms they have forgotten. By combining authentic vintage watch parts, typewriter parts, buttons, tokens, and other objects from past ages with different metals, filigrees, and patinas, my pieces are truly one-of-a-kind and are meant to provoke emotion and remembrances.

My work is currently for sale in several Art Gallery’s around the area. I was honored to also have a piece on display for 6 months last year as a part of the exhibit “GO FIGURE: Creatively Transforming Our Environment” in the McDonald Gallery in the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette. It was chosen as one of the top five out of over forty artists, and my work was showcased concurrently with illustrations from the Saturday Evening Post. I currently have a chair I created on exhibit at the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette that will be auctioned at the end of September to benefit the museum.

Please keep in mind that each piece is created as a one-of-a-kind using authentic vintage parts and pieces. The photo represents what each piece will resemble. But again, keep in mind I will be using other authentic parts, etc. to make it its own.” If you have further questions, please contact me at ckdarr@comast.net.
