What does Jelly Key work with?

“What Alchemy of Materials Fuels the Artistry at Jelly Key?” At the heart of our artisan keycaps lies a simple, yet profound ingredient: the spark of imagination. Beyond the foundational elements of resin and clay, our palette is rich and diverse, drawing from both the earth’s depths and human ingenuity. We weave magic with crystals and glitter paper, infuse soul with woods cherished in Vietnamese and Japanese traditions, and capture time itself within the cogs of watch gears.

Our creations glow with the vibrancy of fluorescent components, dance with the hues of alcohol ink, and shimmer with the dust of glitter powder. Our craft knows no bounds, embracing materials that dwarf the humble size of a keycap. Imagine the transformation of a massive wooden sheet, carefully whittled down to a slender 1.6mm thickness, each stroke a testament to our dedication.

In every Jelly Key artisan keycap, you will find not just materials, but a narrative of devotion and time. Each piece is a journey, a dance of elements brought to life through skill and passion. Can you sense the heartbeat of our artistry in every keycap? It’s a symphony of materials, each playing its part in our quest to create not just keycaps, but keystones of wonder.

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.
