VinniexCharley - 'Sweethearts' Keychains by Artaith-21 VinniexCharley - 'Sweethearts' Keychains by Artaith-21
For more VinniexCharley love ------> :iconvinnie--x--charley:

I was trying to get this uploaded before midnight so that it would officially count as a Valentine's Day upload, but nothing ever is that simple :XD:  The battery in my Lumix camera was shot beyond being able to be charged and there was no way I was going to find a replacement battery for it anywhere on such short moment's notice ( I'll probably have to order one, most likely ), so I grabbed my new Canon HD video camera to take some still shots, and wouldn't you know, I spent hours fighting the fact that the computer would not recognize the camera to get said photos off the camera.  Yeesh.

Anyway, this is just an adorkable design I made for some VinniexCharley keychains.  I made about 7 keychains total ( if you don't count the ones that didn't survive 'the process' ) and here is a picture of 2 slightly different variations.  They are made of plastic, with a clear, heat pressed enamel coating on top to make them smooth and shiny.  I also made the chain parts entirely myself- stringing the links together, stringing the beads, doing the tiger tails and crimping, and attaching the lobster claws and charms.  I have learned that I will never be a jeweler, for I am far too klutzy.  My floor is strewn with stray beads and and sterling silver chain links.  For every bead or link I attached, at least 3 popped out of my fingers and got lost on the floor beforehand :XD:

The one in the top left is slightly lighter in color, while the one with the beaded heart chain is darker.  I played around with different approaches to try and see what kind of color saturations I could get each time.  Also, there are a few other variations I did, like a different style heart shape and the keychain part attaches slightly behind Vinnie's head to allow the keychain to hang more in a diagonal manner ( which I actually prefer on my keyrings ), but I don't have any photos of those included here because I haven't done the enamel coating for them yet.

Anyway, these things are always fun to make and I'm working on more BMFM designs ( after I finish that danged Apriltello one I promised Aery 9_9 ).  The little joyful spirit of this keychain was inspired by Tom Tataranowicz's most recent email conversations with a fellow VinniexCharley wanker, in which he stated 'they are soul mates'. :date: It made my little lovesick heart beat ^_^ :love:

Happy Valentine's Day!

Your welcome! And they're the only couple I ship. I do not ship Throttle/Corbin probably because I love Throttle and don't want to share him.
