Klik Klik's Magnetic Jewelry for Power Attraction

By on Sunday, August 28, 2011 8 Comments

Magnetic beads are not new. But Klik Klik Jewelry Kits by Brooklyn designers, Al Kelly and Kellar Williams, really ups the design possibilities of magnetic jewelry.

They use high quality neodymium magnets - these are the strongest permanent magnets known. You get 300 neodymium magnets per kit ($65). Then the fun begins...

Each kit has 216 spheres, 56 cubes and 28 wands. Using any combination of spheres, cubes or wands, you "click" the magnets together to form your own patterns big or small or simply just "mash" them together to form necklaces, bracelets, armbands, anklets and even rings. No clasps are required!

For inspiration on tons of design ideas, check out their site as well as the videos there. Here are some of my favorites :

Livingstone Bracelet

Olympia Necklace
Kirbie Necklace

These strong magnets are NOT for children who may accidentally swallow them, with dangerous, if not fatal consequences. They are not suitable either for people who have pacemakers as strong magnetic fields can affect their devices. The magnets are nickle-plated so are best avoided by people who have this metal allergy.  Also keep them away from direct contact with things like credit cards which use magnetic storage.

  1. I remember the previous fad of magnetic jewelry. I made lots before the overseas variety hit the market. Everyone still loves them.
    These are amazing. Just one question. Can you make a design that stays or do they come apart when removed? I didn't see that they were permanently assembled.

  2. No, these do come apart but are strongly attracted together when composed. That's the whole idea - to be able to change the designs at whim.

  3. This is a cool idea......until you get to the part about them affecting pacemakers.

    So how wide are these magnetic fields? Are you putting your elderly grandparents with pacemakers at risk when you hug them at a family gathering if you wear that jumbled bracelet (which probably has a kit and a half's worth of magnets) or any of the necklaces?

    Just wondering, because like everyone else, I forget I have certain jewelry on half the time. Wouldn't want to put anyone at risk... :^D

  4. I have no idea what the actual magnetic strength is. But if there are several strong magnets together like in a jewelry piece, then the collective fields would likely be a concern. So I would say, no hugging!

  5. Those are really cool, but I bet that jewelry is heavy!

  6. It's pretty and very unique and would be fun to play around with. I'd love to see how well they'd wear on a daily basis, I mean if the bracelet got hung up on something would it come apart and would little metal balls end up skittering everywhere or would it just come undone and end up on the floor in one big blob ?

    The designs shown are quite attractive and the magnets themselves remind me of hematite.

  7. Probably the latter, unlike pearls!!

  8. I really like the idea of being able to change your jewelry on the go. Now if only they would make them in copper or gold.
