There are thousands of awesome wine cork crafts online including hundreds of cork keychains.
While poking around Pinterest late last night for wine cork crafts, my wife and I stumbled across what must be the most expensive wine cork we’ve ever seen.
Now, don’t get me wrong, it isn’t just a wine cork.
It’s a branded natural champagne cork that is attached to a brass keychain.
It’s functional. It’s fashionable. It’s expensive.
Giles & Brother has some really fantastic pieces in their collection. They clearly take pride in their work and it shows.
As they say on their website.
Giles & Brother is the collaboration of brother-sister duo Philip and Courtney “Giles” Crangi. A jewelry and accessories design house with a strong point of view and a foundation in American craftsmanship, Giles & Brother offers a smart, pared-down perspective on fashion jewelry. We believe that a piece becomes more beautiful when it reveals the hand that made it, and our signature brass and silver oxide finishes maintain a rough-hewn quality that imbues our cuffs, wraps, rings and necklaces with their own heritage.
If you’re in the market for fine handcrafted jewelry then they are certainly a place you’ll want to look.
Build your own champaign cork keychain
However, follow the links below if you have some time and want to make a keychain similar to theirs at a fraction of the cost.
On Amazon, you can buy 100 recycled champaign corks for $18.99 plus shipping. These corks won’t have your personal brand on them but they come from a variety of wineries around the world.
You can also pick up 100 keychain rings with a chain for $8.99 plus applicable shipping costs.
After that, just screw the eye pin into the cork then attach the chain.
Obviously, it won’t look as nice as the Giles & Brother keychain but you’ll have a functional and fashionable champaign cork keychain of your own.
Or, you can spend the $95.00 to get the original.
