[KeyRelic] Premium Metal Artisan Keycaps
« on: Sun, 07 March 2021, 13:33:12 »

Behold, mortals!
For you can witness the creation of KeyRelics!
Gaze and despair as they are probably beyond your budget anyways


KeyRelic

 


Key
/kiː/
Noun: a part to be depressed by a finger that serves as one unit of a keyboard
Adjective:  extremely or crucially important
Verb:  to make nervous, tense, or excited
       Relic
        \ˈre-lik \
                    an object esteemed and venerated because of association with a saint or martyr
              a survivor or remnant left after decay, disintegration, or disappearance
               a trace of some past or practice, custom, or belief




Forged from solid metal and built to last ages, they will stand the test of time and outlive us all just like the pieces of timeless art they were inspired by.
Disgust - is what I feel when I see all the plastic, mass-produced, junk that eventually ends up in the landfill. My aim is to make something opposite, artifacts that will be passed from generation to generation.
Our Keycaps are not a product for many, but only for a selected few.

Right now all of our keycaps are available here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/KeyRelic

In this thread, I will showcase our creations!

The newest of them is The Lion!








Inspired by the best house from GoT.
Remember that scene, when Tyrion gives his lion ring to Shaga and says, that this trinket is worth more than anything that his tribe owns?

Thanks!
The 'master' from which other keycaps forms are made is cast in silver.
I'm planning to make a video showing the making process someday.

And a beautiful build from reddit user alttp30  featuring brass lion keycap!

Time for a true Unique Artefact and without a doubt, most premium (and most expensive) Artisan Keycap ever made!

14K Solid Gold with Genuine Emerald Gemstones



The Green Man is a legendary being primarily interpreted as a symbol of rebirth, representing the cycle of new growth and life.



Developed independently across many ancient cultures, he is found on churches, temples, and architecture all around the world, the mysterious being watches over the nature, overseeing its cycle.



But our inspiration did not come from any of that tree-hugging ****.



Nature is an endless battle for survival. And this darker side of nature was what inspired us to create our Green Man.



In a form of a premium keycap from KeyRelics, he serves as a guardian, a warden. Watching over the neverending cycle; his cruel, vicious face serving as a reminder that nature is a force to be reckoned with.
