Bandit Monkey Keychain
BANDIT is Rice Baby’s second cousin once removed. Bandit specializes in the acquisition of stuff from others. A repo monkey of sorts, but with a focus on the unwanted. Bandit steals away worries and sorrows for free!
To create Bandit, I first drew him and then sculpted him out of clay. I gave my clay version to Andu, who carved a miniature version out of wax. We then take the wax sculpture to an outside facility to have it cast in brass. Ardi, the silversmith at our workshop, takes it from there, cleaning up the casting and fastening the loop on his tail to one of our awesome handmade spring clips.
Designed by Spencer Hansen, this solid brass Bandit monkey pendant keychain measures 2.5 cm x 2.5 cm and hangs from a custom 5 cm brass spring clip.
Please note that because all Blamo charm keychains are handmade, despite our efforts to create the perfect art figure, each one is unique and may contain minor imperfections… or as we like to call it, character.
