This past Monday I introduced you to Mary Cattapan, Creator of Clix™ Magnetic Interchangeable Jewelry by Studio66 LLC. If you missed my interview with Mary, click here to read it now. Today, I wanted to share more about her amazing jewelry.
What sets Mary's jewelry apart from others is that it is the only one of its kind. "After many months of designing and producing it, it has finally come to life!", says Mary. Clix Wearable Art Bracelets are a five-bezel, unique bracelet all about YOU! Using a simple magnetic or flat-back 1" Clix insert, you design a bracelet all about YOU! Your art, your story. Select from her insert options or upgrade to customer inserts. The bracelet comes in a toggle-clasp design with three "sizer-rings" to get your fit just right. It measures about 8-1/2" from end to end, and can accommodate a variety of wrist sizes.
This is what the bracelet looks like without any of the buttons attached to it:
On the inside of the bracelet, you will see five delicately etched floral designs.
From here, you can choose buttons that Mary offers on her Etsy site, or you can work with her and have her create custom buttons, which can include photos of family and pets, your hobbies, etc. Whatever makes you happy, share with Mary, so that she can create the perfect piece that you will treasure forever, and smile each time you look at it. One bracelet base takes you from casual to classy to chic all with a couple clix! To change the buttons, simply press on the edge and they pop right out of their snug bezels. As with all jewelry items, these are not intended for children and should not be worn in water.
Just look at some of the buttons that you can purchase and interchange with Mary's unique, one of a kind bracelets::
As far as upkeep, there's not much to do. The bracelet is made of zinc alloy with a beautiful, high-quality platinum plating. If it gets dirty, simply wipe it off with a soft damp cloth. Be sure to take your bracelet off at night, sleeping with your bracelet on may sit in one position and like most jewelry, the moisture from your skin can interact with the metal and cause a temporary discoloration.
In addition to the five-bezel, unique bracelet, Mary also offers one-bezel Clix Wearable Art Pendants, which use the same buttons you use with her bracelet. How great is that? You can by an assortment of buttons to fit your style and personality, and go from wearing only a pendant one day, to pairing the pendant with the matching bracelet the next. Either way you wear these pieces, you don't have to worry about needing different buttons sizes. Here are a few examples of the buttons added to the pendants:
Aren't these buttons beautiful? Mary kindly sent me a pendant and bracelet to review, and like I said in the introduction to her Spotlight on Mommy post, I just love them! It is great for a busy mom like me, with a baby and toddler, as I can wear the bracelet and not have to worry about either of them pulling it off. This is the one thing I missed when I became a mom. I went from a chain necklace to a teething necklace --- hehehe. But, not any more, thanks to Mary and her unique jewelry. Even the girls love to look at the gorgeous buttons that adorn my pendant and bracelet.
Within a matter of moments, I can switch out the buttons and go from hearts to a more organic look with trees. I have been wearing this around town since receiving about a month ago, and can't go anywhere without someone stopping to ask me about it. And, when I demonstrate the switching out of the buttons, they love it even more. You really do have to see Mary's jewelry up close, to appreciate its beauty and uniqueness. I have gone from needing a jewelry box full of pieces to switch up and match with my outfits, to only needing the pendant and bracelet and a dozen buttons. Day or night, the Clix™ Magnetic Interchangeable Jewelry will not only add to your outfit, but will also make you smile, as they are so lovely to look at.
