Peter Cole’s Vintage Key Hooks and Necklaces


Having trouble keeping track of your keys? Maybe you need one of these wall hooks made from keys by artist and World Maker Faire Alum Peter Cole on which to hang them. Cole was back at World Maker Faire this year, but instead of showing off his curious sculptures, he’s exhibiting a different series of works made from found objects.


Cole collected vintage keys and customized them with hammered texts and then bent them into wall hooks and necklaces. Not only are these an ingenious way to reuse an otherwise useless object, they’re a unique way to customize your home and your person!


Artist, writer, and teacher who makes work about popular culture, technology, and traditional craft processes.
