Copper Time Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This beautiful watch is an instant classic! Simple to make and fun to wear, you can mix the colors and make one for each season.

Step One: Cut two lengths of Beadalon® satin copper beading wire to approximately 2½ inches. Crimp one end of each wire to the rings on the watch face using a 2x2mm copper crimp tubes.

Step Two: On each side, string an antique copper-plated pewter twisted spacer bead followed by a 6mm Czech glass fire polished tortoise bead, another spacer, a 6mm fire polished topaz bead and another spacer. Repeat this pattern two more times and crimp the remaining ends to the clasp.
