Our Story

A little left of center, we founded the Rusted Key because big box retailers were too boring, too conservative, and lacking in character or depth.  So we took discarded typewriters and turned them into cufflinks.  We recycled forgotten watches and created timeless pendants.  Inspired by the American tradition of history and innovation, we continue to design and produce stunning pieces of wearable art, with a respect for the past and an eye towards the edge.
