I've had a blast working with Klik Interchangeable Jewelry this week! For my last project I worked with the leather bracelet.
Klik Interchangeable Jewelry from Metal Complex is a fantastic new line of DIY accessory options. With two snap sizes and dozens of settings to snap your creations into, this terrific product is fun to play with for every level of crafter. There are tons of pre-made snaps so you can just “klik and go” to change up your look. But this week we’re playing with the Metal Complex Snap Bezel Blanks so we can craft our own masterpieces of wearable art.
1.Cut a piece of paper to fit on your button. Adhere. You could probably skip this step, but I wanted to be sure the button holes didn't show in the design.
2. Coat your button with Versamark. Dip in embossing powder. The Aged Metal Embossing Enamels are perfect for this! I used Aged Silver. Heat embossing powder. While it is still molten hot dip it back into the embossing powder to pick up more. Heat again. Repeat once more.
3. While the embossing powder is still hot, immediately press the button onto your stamp. I loved the design on Nathalie Kalbach Kaffee Klatsch stamps. I like to use pliers to hold the button through the buttonholes and protect your fingers.
4. You can give the faux aged metal button a coat of resin or glossy accents if you wish. Adhere button to the Klik jewelry snap with adhesive.
When I was digging through my button jar to find a button for the faux metal button base, I found this big old looking metal flower button. I realized the shank of the button fit perfectly in the Klik snap. I just used a bit of adhesive to hold it firmly in place.
The last Klik jewelry finding on the bracelet was creating by simply filling a bezel with Dreamweavers Black Paste. You could add a gem or charm while the paste is still wet but I loved the simple, matte look!
