Artist: Gwen Toffling
Gwen titled her submission "Sinister Serenity's First Pair." I have a feeling these roller skates have a story. My photo does not capture the gorgeous metallic background Gwen created for her tiny skating imagery. She worked in the small Klik bezel snap yet managed to layer the colour and paper imagery before pouring in her resin. Gwen took some time to include a note which said " I've tried to read all of your posts as I am so inspired and want to try everything." Thank you for participating Gwen!
Artist: Teri Calbert
Teri's sailboat background comes to life with the addition of real shells. She has even included sand. This KLIK components captures a scene we are all familiar with. I am sure it makes more than a few of us think of a favorite marina. Teri took this photo and selected shells from the same location for her keepsake.
Artist: Janice Fuller
Janice also worked in a small KlIK snap. Her submission reminds me that there are so many unique styles of art. Her silver/gray background already featured a flower which is highlighted by the thick white paint dots. The dots, are not completely covered by resin, so when you hold this submission in your hand you can feel the dot tops.
Artist: Sherri Hill
Sherri and I emailed back and forth about her submission. She had this idea and knew that her KLIK component would no longer be "klickable" once she was done. I think she was brilliant to use the bezel in her own way. She received a small bezel...but created a BIG project. Her bezel sides are now uniquely altered by the addition of a sandy frame. Her shells are floating in resin and appear wet. She drilled a hole into her octopus and attached the snap as though it was already designed to live there. It really is a wonderful entry to our KLIK collaboration. Thank you so much for sharing it!
Sherri sent me the completed necklace!
Canada's Favorite Bead Store now has the KLIK components in their online store.
About the KLIK Collaboration
Over 50 artists were the first to receive the new Snap Bezel designed by Metal Complex.
They received either the small or large bezel to work in.
These "blank" snap bezels "klik" into place when combined with the other jewelry-making components in the new KLIK collection. You can see the entire line in the catalog on the Metal Complex website linked here.
The full introduction to the collaboration is posted here.
