This beaded rope keychain is a cute way of proclaiming Indigenous pride while keeping track of essentials (i.e. keys). Beaded ropes are fashioned by tightly wrapping, then securing down beads around a thin rope. They are hearty and can take some daily wear and tear.
Approximately 11” in length, this 3-Cut Eggshell keychain is simple, not to flashy; bonded with a thin piece of leather.
