Fear of Commitment

by: Dwyn Tomlinson

Here’s
a fear – the fear of commitment. The fear of using that beautiful
object that you have only one of – and then not having it anymore to use
in another piece.

Sadly – I usually buy multiples of the things
I really like, and now I have drawers and drawers of stuff, and can’t
find the thing I’m looking for – so it’s all a wash.

This new
jewelry system – called, variously, depending on the manufacturer, “In a
Snap,” “Noosa” or “Klik” is the first interchangeable jewelry system
that is quick and easy to change out the focal piece.

Your
individual item glues (I used epoxy clay, because I like it’s non-runny
properties) onto a snap back, and then the items you make, bracelets,
pendants, etc, have a snap-into section. As easy as doing up your jeans.
Change up your jewelry as fast as you change your clothes, and no
special tools required, no fiddling, just snap and go.

I bet
spies could use these to exchange information. That could be in a Bond
flick. Maybe you could make one with a memory card inside … ? Bond …
Jane Bond …

You don’t need much of the epoxy clay, about the
size of a pea. It’s harder to mix well in super small quantities, so
glue up a bunch at the same time.

The magnetic clasp is not
quite the right size for the regaliz – but I never let that stop me.
Trim it down (as shown) with wire cutters and dry fit before glueing.
