Celtic Copper Watch Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Create this vintage-inspired watch and you'll never again be able to say that you lost track of time. This watch adds a subtle touch of warm coloring to your designs without making it too flashy for everyday wear. If you enjoy this watch design, you're sure to enjoy the Vintage Funky Watch that served as its inspiration.

Step One: Cut an eight-inch piece of Beadalon 49 .018 stringing wire. Use a 2x2mm copper antiqued crimp tube to crimp one end of the wire to a loop on the toggle end of the antique copper heirloom two-loop clasp set. Trim any excess wire. For help with crimp tubes visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step Two: String on the wire in this order: antique copper small Celtic circle bead, two 5x4mm orange/light blue with Picasso roundelles, 9x6mm opaque ivory with half Picasso roundelle, orange/light blue roundelle, Celtic bead, orange/light blue roundelle, ivory roundelle, orange/light blue roundelle, Celtic bead, orange/light blue roundelle, ivory roundelle, two orange/light blue roundelles. String the wire through the copper tone oval watch face. Mirror the design to match the other side. Finish by crimping the wire to the remaining loop on the toggle with a crimp tube. Trim any excess wire.

Step Three: Repeat the steps above to complete the other half of the watch band, starting and ending with the loop half of the clasp.
