Have you heard of interchangeable, snap-on button jewelry that starts with a base bracelet from which you can easily add and remove snap-on buttons to completely change the look of your bracelet? Well, we figured out how to make an interchangeable bracelet using the same concept with KAM snap fasteners!
Once you make your bracelet base, you can mix and match your snaps to design your very own, unique jewelry! We have a large selection of snap colors, shapes, and engraved designs that allow you to create some really fun, custom bracelets!
First, score the cap and disc bracelet as shown. Do this for 12 caps and the 12 discs on your bracelet. Scoring the surface will allow your cap to adhere better to your bracelet when glued. The deeper the score, the better. I used the tip of a nail file to score.
TIP: These caps will serve as the base of your bracelet, and will be slightly visible in your design (see last photos). If you want a more neutral colored base, use black or white caps.
Using your KAM snap pliers or KAMsnaps KX8J professional handheld press , press each cap to a socket.
Apply a generous amount of E6000 glue to a disc on your bracelet, then attach the back of a cap to your bracelet. Socket will be facing up as shown. Repeat for each cap and disc on bracelet.
IMPORTANT: Allow glue to set at least overnight to form a strong bond. E6000 will create a strong hold, but it needs a couple of hours to cure first. Do not skip this step.
Choose 12 engraved/ colored/ shape snaps to design your bracelet. Engraved mermaid snaps and colorful glossy snaps were used here.
Using your KAM snap pliers or KAMsnaps KX8J professional handheld press, press each cap to a stud.
Attach your snaps onto your bracelet, and you've got a beautiful, interchangeable snap-on bracelet!
Here's the same bracelet base, but the top caps were interchanged with engraved owl and sunflower snaps.
