New Acrylic Keyrings

It’s my birthday today and I’ve got some cute new keyrings in my shop.

My keyrings have had a super cute upgrade with full colour prints on recycled acrylic and a star keychain! There’s 3 characters to choose from – Ghost, Planet and Bunny.

These have a little star clasp that you can clip on to your current setup, or you can attach one or 2 keys straight to it. The first 50 orders also include a free split ring (because I bought a whole bag in the wrong size for my Cloud keyrings!).

They also make very cute bag charms. Find them all in my shop and Etsy now. There’s one last Ghost in the old style too.

While you’re shopping, don’t miss my new stationery lucky bags that are packed full of misprints and slightly flawed and overstocked items. They’re all in my main shop but I’ll add some to Etsy at the weekend if there’s any left.
