What does Jelly Key work with?
What materials does Jelly Key use to create their artisan keycaps? The answer is simple: ideas! Along with the main components of resin and clay, we incorporate various other materials to sculpt and form each keycap. From crystal and glitter paper to Vietnamese and Japanese wood, watch gears, fluorescent components, alcohol ink, and glitter powder, we will use any material necessary to bring our unique keycap designs to life. Sometimes, we even work with materials that are much larger than the size of a keycap, such as cutting a table-sized wooden sheet into a small keycap and meticulously sanding it down to 1.6mm thickness. These materials are not just about ideas, but also require a great deal of time and passion. Can you feel it?
Jelly Key innovations meet creations.
At Jelly Key, we believe in pushing the boundaries of artisan keycap design with our constant craving for innovation and creation. While other keycap makers stick to traditional sculpture techniques, we have taken giant leaps with our Oasis, Nebula, Forbidden Realms, Legendary Castle, and Jelly Eden designs. Each keycap is the result of our passion for learning new skills and experimenting with a variety of materials.
Our inspiration comes from everything around us, from the beauty of nature to the intricacies of watch mechanisms, from gaming to arts and magical spells. We constantly renew ourselves through raffles, giveaways, and unique group-buys. And we never repeat a design, ensuring that each keycap is truly one-of-a-kind.
We believe that the purpose of our artisanship is to constantly innovate and create. As the world changes, so do our designs. We refuse to be bored and strive to bring fresh ideas to the table every day. We manifest reality from our dreams and value our human community above all else. Join us on this journey of innovation and creation.
More importantly, each of our designs is only available for sale once, and only that one single time. We never run the same groupbuy again in any way. The purpose for this fits perfectly with our artisanship philosophy: to constantly innovate and create. As the world is constantly changing, why shouldn’t we? Every day when the sun rises, when the new wind blows, it means our creativity needs to be brought into play, in order to produce ideas and make it come true. We manifest reality when there were only dreams. Humans are instinctively afraid of boredom, and that’s the idea of us caring about our human value and community.
