I didn't want it to be too chunky as I wanted to be mindful that his teacher may not like chunky keychains but the school book charm has a lovely weight to it that I thought would be great for helping find keys in the bottom of a handbag.
One of the big beads from this broken necklace was the perfect addition to the school book charm to make a simple but cute keychain.
You can see on of the ways I have used bits from this necklace on a scrapbook layout here, in the post I link to another layout I used different parts on.
How cute is that book stack?
