EARLY TO RISE DENIM KEY RINGS

A few days ago I launched a new website -  EarlyToRiseLA.com
It all started with me needing a new keyring.  
With my love of vintage, denim and solid, well made things... I made this.  I made it so I can attach it to my suspender buttons on my 1933's Levis and my 201 Levi's but also can just carry it in my pocket.
I used selvedge raw denim, copper rivets and burrs, cotton tread, and vegetable tanned leather.
With four different types.  Red Selvedge (Cone 12.5oz) Yellow (Cone 12oz) Indigo (Kurabo 12oz) Hickory Stripe (Kurabo)
I use my 1898 Singer 29-4 sewing machine to sew the leather (see earlier post)
I even had special tags made.  I wanted this to be as professional as possible.
Here's an earlier prototype I currently carry.  The copper and leather has aged very well.  If you like these and would like one for yourself, go to the link and order one.  I think it's Vintage Gear for Guys.
