KLIK It, KLIK it Good!



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.  Here’s what I’ve created:



Here’s what I used to create my project:

Metal Complex™ Klik Triple Round Pendant with Crystals
Metal Complex™ Klik Large Snap Base with Bezel
Metal Complex™ Klik Small Snap Base with Bezel
ETI Jewelry Resin
Copic® Markers BV01, BV02, BV04
Liquitex® Cadmium Yellow Medium Hue Acrylic Soft Body Paint
DecoArt® DecoPage
May Arts Ribbon

Here’s what I did to create my project:

Stamp images with black ink on white paper and color with markers
Cut out flowers and add a small dot of yellow paint in the the center of each flower
Mix glitters and fragments together
Coat each side of flower with DecoPage to seal it, set aside to dry
Coat bottom of each bezel with a coat of DecoPage and sprinkle on mixture of glitters and fragments
Mix your resin, be sure to pay close attention to directions
Once mixed, start adding resin over glitter and fragments
Gently add in flowers as shown and continue to add resin
Allow resin to cure for a minimum of 24 hours
Once resin has cured, snap bezels to pendant piece and add ribbon

You can see all the wonderful Klik products and tons of ideas for creating with this super fun product in their flippy catalog HERE and you can find a retailer HERE. We’d like to recommend www.resinobsession.com because they carry Stampendous products as well!



To make our wonderful Klik jewelry pieces we used products by Environmental Technology, Inc. (ETI) who generously sent our team some of their wonderful Jewelry Resin. This two part resin is incredibly easy to use and creates fantastic, professional results. We love using it here on the Stampendous Design Team. This great resin is sold at Resin Obsession, but you can also find it at Michaels and other fine craft stores. You can get thousands of ideas for using resin to create your own pieces on the resincrafts blog or on the I Love Resin blog.

  12. Lea, Had to stop by. Your resin jewelry has always been incredible but you have outdone yourself with this piece. I Love how you placed each bloom on a bed of fragments. It's stunning.
