Do you have negatives or slides in your closet from the days before smartphones? I know I do, and I haven’t gotten around to tackling the task of transferring them into digital format.

This key ring looks more like a piece of jewelry than a bottle opener, so I suppose we could look at it as multi-purpose kind of accessory. A triangle pin keeps the shackle closed, keeping your keys secure and your hand at the ready should an unopened bottle of beer or soda cross your path. Each key ring is precisely cut within thousandths of an inch by family company J. L. Lawson & Co.
