Key Making Supplies by KeypersCove Key Making Supplies by KeypersCove
Hey everyone, Nicole here, We've been asked for a more in depth supply list on what we use. Here is a picture of 80% of supplies that we use to make keys. You can buy everything online, ebay, amazon, ace hardware.

The thing is, if anyone really wants to learn jewelry soldering you should get a book on it if you're serious. Asking a stranger online how to solder jewelry isn't the best method. Invest in a good book, it will tell you EXACTLY what you need and where to get it. Books run about $10.

As for charms, I literally spend hours searching for parts to use. You just have to be patient and try different key words to find new things. We rarely use the same people for supplies.


List of supplies:

1. Organization drawers (you can get them at Hobby Lobby/Michaels)
2. Key Charms (Ebay. Just type in key charms and start looking.)
3. Watch parts (just start collecting them. Search ebay for watch parts or watch gears)
4. Charms (search for whatever you want. leaf charms, wolf charms, etc.)
5. Tools: Wire pliers, pliers, wire cutters, different sizes, super glue for gems (hardware stores carry lots of tools. True story.)
6. Dremel for sanding (electric sander)
7. Soldering torch, soldering stone, solder, wire/clamps for holding pars, safety goggles, mask
8. Paints
9. Clasps, chains, cords, (craft stores)
10. Shipping supplies, bubble wrap, boxes (different sizes)
11. Care Cards/business cards
12. 7 large working tables, chair, mat/tarp on ground for spilling parts. (Uline)
13. (Nikon Camera with Micro Nikkor 60mm lens (not in picture because it was taking picture)
14. Photoshop/computer for cleaning pictures
15. Pikachu clock I got when I was like 10 (ebay probably has some)
16. Keepers and Tobin (these are limited edition and cannot be found in stores)
