Rave Neon Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

You'll never lose track of time when you rock this bright beaded watch! Inspired by retro patterns of the 1980s, this design is laced with beautiful neon pearls framed by bold black druk beads.

Step one:
Cut one piece of clear 0.8mm elasticity bead cord approximately 32 inches long.

Step two:
Thread the cord through the top loop of the silver-tone wide oval black watch face for equal lengths on both ends.

Step three:
String a random pattern of approximately forty-five beads using Swarovski 3mm, 4mm, 6mm, 8mm and 10mm round pearls in Neon Pink, Neon Yellow and Neon Orange along with jet matte druk beads in sizes 3mm and 4mm. Make sure the larger pearls are closest to the watch face, for comfort against your wrist. Do this for both sides.

Step four:
Bring the strand ends back to the bottom loop of the watch face, threading them through the loop from opposite sides, crisscrossing them. Create another beaded pattern on both strands as in Step three and then tie a surgeon's knot to finish.
Estimated time: Less than 30 minutes
Difficulty level: Beginner
