Key to the Lock, Locking the Key
I've been thinking that this pewter replica of a lock can be used just straight as a charm. The hole through the keyhole is open, so a wire wrap can go through for a dangle. Then I thought about attaching it as the closure.
With a brass wire hammered hook, you could make the lock be the closure by hooking through the top loop and wire wrapping your chain through the keyhole.
And since it's nice to have a key with the lock, I made this replica skeleton key out of pewter, with loops for hanging and attaching, for your mate with the lock.
They both have a deep bronze-like patina on them, very aged. Can you think of more fun ways to use these?
