LOVE gunmetal. It is so earthy, so natural looking... it doesn't tarnish, either! Big plus for me, as time is sometimes at a minimum and when rushed, don't have time for a quick swipe of a tarnished piece with a jeweler's cloth. So a friend gave me some little skeleton keys to make her some jewelry, which I did. As payment, she gave me more keys... So now, my friends, I can make them for you!
