Breast Cancer Awareness Watch Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Show your support or celebrate your survival with this beautiful breast cancer awareness pink ribbon watch. The pale pastel colors used in this multi-strand timepiece make it great for everyday wear.

When creating this watch, make sure to cut the wire the appropriate size for your wrist, our measurements are only an approximation. All watches should be made fairly tight, because the faces are heavy and will naturally want to swing to the back of your wrist.

Step One: Cut a six-inch piece of SoftFlex .019 medium wire. Place a bead stopper at one end of the wire. On the wire, thread four white keshi pearls, a 6mm daisy spacer, a 6mm Swarovski faceted cube in rose water opal, a spacer, three pearls, a spacer, a rose water opal cube, a spacer, three pearls and a 4mm sterling silver seamless round bead. Thread the wire onto the jump ring of the silver-tone round watch face with hearts and ribbons. Reverse the pattern to finish threading the wire, and place a bead stopper at the end. Repeat to create a second strand.

Step Two: When you've finished both strands, remove the bead stoppers, and thread all four ends through a sterling silver round. Crimp the ends of the wires together using a 3x2mm sterling silver crimp tube. For help with crimp tubes, visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Trim three of the wires so that they end just above the silver round. Thread the remaining long wire through the sterling silver heart cone. Crimp the wire to a sterling silver open jump ring. Attach the jump ring to one end of the 14mm sterling silver heart toggle clasp. For help with jump rings, visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step Three: Repeat these steps to create the other half of the watch band.
