Fastenables by Vintaj

Fastenables by Vintaj are great little components that you can fasten to just about anything you can think of. Of course, my first choice is to incorporate them into my jewelry designs, but they would also be great for altered art projects. They come in two great metals: natural brass and eco-friendly Arte Metal which is made from natural ferrite ore. You can alter their color easily with acrylic paint or alcohol inks, embed them into ICE Resin or Glossy Accents to make a dimensional collage pendant or attach them using rivets, jump rings, wire or cord. I am a huge fan of riveting, so I used the riveting and piercing system to make all of the pieces in the above picture which could be used for pendants or earrings!


These fun earrings were made with the Natural Brass Perennial Laurel Fastenable. I glued on Swarovski Elements Crystal Flat Back Rhinestones to add color and cover the holes.

I created the pendant in this necklace using acrylic paint, alcohol inks and glossy accents. I added a little extra sparkle with some Swarovski Elements Crystal Flat Back Rhinestones to cover the holes.

In these earrings we painted the Natural Brass Beaded Flower Washer with acrylic paint and then layered with the Natural Brass Gearwheel Fastenable and Natural Brass Trillium Petals Fastenable for some super cute earrings.

I hope this inspires you to work some Fastenables into your next jewelry project!

Happy Beading! – Cody
