The snap base brooches are listed in our online store but also in bulk in our DIY snap supplies section.
I am excited about these new designs as another fun jewelry option as brooch pins have become fashionable again and not just for little old ladies. A brooch pin is such a versatile piece of jewelry and can be worn so many different ways. It is not only just an accent piece but can be used to hold a sweater or jacket closed or your scarf in place.
Brooches that can be worn more than one way (like the interchangeable snap type) are even better. The first style of brooch pin we made was all from clay and had a pin back with an attached bail so it could also be worn as a necklace. We have a special way of attaching the pin/bail to the back and this was featured in the Winter issue of the Polymer Arts Magazine.
Since we discovered using snaps with our clay to make interchangeable jewelry, we have created several other styles of brooch pins. One is multi-functional that can be worn not only as a magnetic brooch but also as a necklace, eyeglass holder or a sweater guard.
Our kilt pin style brooches work well with tighter weave knits. The snap base is on a clip and detaches so it can also be worn as a necklace. The charm also unclips for interchanging.
And if you are looking for something a little simpler, we also have available both a brooch and lapel pin with a snap base that does not have a fancy frame. These work really well with the larger clay snap styles.
So which brooch pin is your favorite? If you are looking for more inspiration, check out some of the articles and pictures we have posted to our pinterest board.
And to make your own interchangeable snaps, I have published a tutorial on how to do this. I have lots of tips and tricks to not only create them but for finishing as well! I always like to provide a lot of information with my tutorials so you can dive in and start creating!
