Victorian Telescoping Key Pencil Necklace


At one time, a skeleton key was a part of everyone's life. The symbol is ripe with meaning: possibility, secrecy, access, new beginnings. This turquoise-studded one has it's own secret: a pencil that telescopes out. (The lead is gone but you can replace it if you wish.)
