This is a beginner project for someone who has never tried the Vintaj embossing plates or someone who just loves the steampunk look...like me! First start with the Vintaj embossing plate with the gear/key design (available at Ben Franklin Crafts). Place the drilled metal Vintaj tag into the embosssing plate and run it through any die-cutting/embossing machine (like the Big Shot) making sure you have the correct thickness to give adequate pressure. Once you achieve an embossed design, lightly sand the piece to add highlights. Use a jump ring to attach a key charm and the embossed steampunk tag onto a leather (or faux leather) cord (lots of choices at BFC). To make the necklace adjustable, overlap the cord ends and tie each end to the other side with a simple knot.
Use a drop of jeweler's glue (from BFC) on each knot to secure, making sure that the knots still slide and then trim the cord ends. Simple right? Try it; you'll love it!
