I few months ago I had a very particular request. A key chain inspired on a Saint: “St. Augustine of Hippo”. Not an easy thing for sure. I had to combined my style with a new piece which mechanism I had to study and think carefully and reflect onto St. Augustine story as well.
Not only I was captivated by this great Saint story and being a Catholic myself I also discovered an amazing painting at the Santissima Annunziata Sanctuary in Florence where I go for mass and was the most inspiring resource.
To make it short. This piece was created from the beginning till the packaging which you can see in my previous post. I wanted to keep a simple line and got fascinated by the initial wire that I made. It came out something very different from the original design and I must say I absolutely adore this key chain. To honor St. Augustine I could not do less but making his intials and a little cross as well at the tip of it. Simple yet elegant only the happy carrier will know what’s about and to finish my loving care for the things I create the key chain was blessed as well.
