Back In Time Watch Instructions

This vintage looking watch will make an eye-catching and practical accessory for any outfit!

Note: The copper links and the clasp take up a lot of room in the overall length of the bracelet, adjust the length of the beaded strands accordingly.

Step one: Cut a 5-inch piece of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire. Use a 2x2mm copper antiqued crimp tube to crimp the wire to one of the jump rings on the copper rectangle watch face. Trim the excess wire. For help using crimp tubes please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center. Repeat two more times for a total of three strands.

Step two: On one of the jewelry wires thread a cube 4mm matte raku plum/blue iris TOHO™ bead. This should hide the crimp. Add an antique copper four flowers rondell, a faceted round light purple 6mm cat's eye, rondell, TOHO™, rondell, cat's eye and rondell. Reverse the pattern to complete the strand and then add a rondell. Use a crimp to crimp to one of the loops on the antique copper braided 3-1 link. Repeat for the other two strands.

Step three: Repeat steps one and two for the other side of the watch.

Step four: Attach the hook part of the antique copper leaf hook & eye clasp set to one of the links and the eye to the other.
