Handcrafted Sterling Silver Stripers Forever Keychain

Description

Description: Handcrafted sterling silver Stripers Forever keychain by silversmith Wendy Krag O’Neil. This design was born out of a love of fishing for Stripers along the shaggy coastline of the Long Island Sound. By hand cutting and soldering several layers of silver together, I created the girth and fins of the striped bass. Using chasing tools, I hammered in the details of its pectoral fins and the telltale horizontal stripes. I then hand stamped Stripers Forever on the back of the key chain. Proceeds from your purchase will go toward helping advocate for the conservation and responsible stewardship of wild Striped Bass along the Atlantic Coast.

Bio: Wendy Krag O’Neil has been silversmithing since the early 90’s. Her earliest tutelage and deepest inspiration was provided by her late grandfather award winning silversmith Frederick Colby. While living in Santa Fe in the ’90s, her husband introduced her to fly fishing which quickly became a true passion. It inspired her to create a line of silver products that feature fish and fly fishing. She   handcrafts sterling silver belt buckles, bracelets, key chains, cuff links and charms including fly fishing themes, fish, and island designs. Currently she runs her business Krag Silversmith out of a studio located in the hay loft of an old renovated barn in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts.
