Midnight and Moonlight Watch Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This fun watch is stamped with different shapes that are reflected in the charms our designer used in the beaded watch band. This watch is slightly under six inches inside diameter when finished. Add additional beads to make it the appropriate length for your wrist. You can either add charms or space out the charms used in the design. Since flat measurements vary greatly from clasped finished pieces, we highly recommend the EZ Bracelet Mini, bracelet sizer.

Step one: Prepare your charms by attaching each one to an open jump ring (SS-OJR30-F).

Step two: Cut two pieces of Beadalon® .018 jewelry wire to approximately 3 ' inches. Attach one of the wires to one side of the watch face using a 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tube. For detailed instructions on how to crimp, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Cover the crimp tube with a sterling silver crimp cover.

Step three: String an 8mm cat's eye faceted round dark blue bead, followed by a charm, repeat until you have strung four of the charms. Add two more rounds. Attach the wire to a sterling silver open jump ring (SS-OJR30-C) using a crimp tube. Cover the tube with a crimp cover. Attach the jump ring to the bar end of a toggle clasp.

Step four: Repeat the pattern on the other side of the watch face and attach the butterfly end of the toggle and you are done!
