The other day on my blog I showcased a Simply Adorned Purse Charm/Key Ring that I made. I wanted to pass on to you additional information about this product. I'm so excited about the Purse Charms and know I will be making a few more. Love it as a gift idea too.
Our Simply Adorned line beautifully combines the best of two worlds: stamping and jewelry! We designed our Simply Adorned charms to hold a creation you design yourself, making your jewelry truly unique.
Simply Adorned charms are lockets--they open up so you can insert your custom stamped image. The Charming stamp set, along with Rub-Ons, glitter, ribbons, and other embellishments, can help you create your unique charm insert. And don't forget that you can embellish the chains with ribbon, felt flowers . . . the possibilities are endless! The frame surrounds tempered beveled glass on the front and flat glass on the back. Because there's glass on both sides of the charm, you can display an image on one side or both. You can create a custom heirloom piece that you'll never want to change, or you can swap artwork in and out, depending on your mood and your wardrobe.
And although we designed Simply Adorned charms to be jewelry, they also make delightful key chains or Christmas tree ornaments. Insert a stamped image or photo of your loved ones, tie a ribbon through the clasp, and you're done!
Paper-crafters and noncrafters alike--will love the look of Simply Adorned and appreciate how easy it is to create custom jewelry. When you wear your own Simply Adorned necklace with artwork you created yourself, be prepared for questions about where you got it!
Our Simply Adorned line includes nickel-plated charms in a variety of sizes, anodized stainless steel chains in two lengths, a bracelet, and a new line of baubles!
Q: What size are the charms?
A: The charms are available in five different sizes:
5/8" x 5/8"
1" x 1"
1" x 1-1/4"
1-1/2" x 2"
Circle charm: 5/8"
The size listed refers to the charm insert; the metal frame around the insert is slightly larger. You can use the included insert as a template to create the perfect-sized piece of artwork for your frame. It is important that your insert matches the insert template exactly. The hinge on your charm can break if your insert is too large and overlaps onto the frame.
Q: Is the toggle clasp meant to be worn in the front or the back?
A: Our stainless steel chain features a toggle clasp and includes an exclusive Stampin' Up! charm identifier. The beautiful leaf charm is designed to be worn on the front to enhance the overall design of the necklace, or worn on the back for a simpler look.
Q: What materials are used to make Simply Adorned jewelry?
A: The charms are nickel-plated zinc alloy with tempered beveled glass on the front, and tempered flat glass in the back. The chains are anodized stainless steel with a nickel-plated zinc alloy charm and toggle.
Q: How do I clean my charm?
A: Use clean water and a cotton applicator to clean the jewelry surface. Do not use alcohol or other chemicals to clean your jewelry as they will damage the finish.
Q: How many layers can I fit inside the charm?
A: The number of layers that fit inside each charm depends on the type of materials used. The space in the charm is 2 mm; as card stock, Designer Series paper, ribbon, and adhesives all differ in thickness, it is difficult to specify the number of layers that will fit inside. It is important to remember that you can break the hinge on your charm if your inserts are too thick. Never force the charm closed. If the charm does not close easily, remove a layer or two from your insert and try again.
Q: How is the jewelry packaged?
A:Each piece comes in a Chocolate Chip box (box for charms: 3-1/4" x 2-1/2" x 1"; box for chains: 9-1/2" x 2-1/2" x 1").
Q: What are Simply Adorned Baubles?A: Our Simply Adorned Baubles add a bit of bling to any bracelet, charm, or chain-or to cards and other projects, as well! Baubles feature a lobster clasp and come in Black Crystal, Clear Crystal, Pink Crystal, and Vanilla Pearl. Crystals are approximately 5/8" and the pearl is approximately 1/2".
