I used to work in a little bead shop not far from campus when I was in college. I loved creating my own accessories. One of my favorite findings at the bead shop were magnetic clasps. I made several bracelets for my grandma and great-aunt who had trouble with the little clasps of traditional jewelry. They loved them (although my great aunt Alice joked about her knife sticking to her wrist at the dinner table).
I was excited to try out another great magnetic accessory by ULINX. They’ve taken the clasp concept to another level with an entire bracelet made of magnetic links. They have a user-friendly interface on the site which allows you to design a custom bracelet with a variety of options/sizes/colors.
You can save/name the design to share with others or order again (I named mine” Popsicle Surprise”).
The first 2, 3 & 4 CLIX are free (depending on the design) with your Design Your Own piece.
Not only are the design options diverse, the bracelet itself is versatile. Turn it over for a black look which matches anything or wear your CLIX and LINX as a ring.
I have a very small wrist and was easily able to adjust the bracelet to fit perfectly.
Be cautious with this product around children. Although the quote below states “they’re great for kids!” ULINX has caution very obviously stated on their packaging and on their site listing the product for ages 14 and older. If you have kids you can imagine the interest they’d have in this magnetic jewelry. In fact in the time it took me to take pictures of the product my 3 year old daughter couldn’t keep her hands off of it long enough for me to even take a picture. I gave up trying to get a shot of the packaging without her hand in the shot and realized it was illustration to keep it up and out of reach if you have little ones at home.
I enjoy wearing my ULINX bracelet. It’s a nice pop of color and pattern and I get a lot of compliments on it. It’s a little heavier than I’m used to and it was too bulky to wear while working (as well as my caution to have magnets near my computer and SD cards. *ULINX claims it is completely safe to use them near these items). I also find random metal objects stuck to my wrist when digging through my purse (bobbi pins, key chain etc.) like my great aunt used to giggle about.
“Diaz has already worn a Ulinx bracelet in a cover shoot, as have Kristin Chenoweth, Valerie Bertinelli (on the current cover of Prevention magazine), Christina Hendricks, Adrien Brody, Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy and Maddox Jolie-Pitt (they’re great for kids!).” Merle
