Keychains

The Keychains saw the light due to my curiosity of being able to create my Kawaii Friends in an even smaller size, along with the simple fact that I've always had a fondness for collecting keychains myself 🙂 Personally loving the way these little take-with-you-anywhere's turned out, they are available in—until now—six different colours. From left to right they have been named from the shades used to create them, which are: Violet, Spring, Coral, Sunshine, Lipstick and Blue Lagoon. They have no other decorations but a pair of big curious eyes—as ever, made out of plastic—peering out of their fluffy bodies, and dangle from a fine silver-metal chain.
