Natural Elegance Watch

We're sorry, but one or more of the items in this Idea is no longer available on our site. Please consider using our suggested alternative product below or selecting another similar product from our store.
This simple watch has an elegant touch. We mixed gold-plated heishi spacers with mookaite oval beads for a beautiful result.

Step one: Cut two lengths of approximately four inches each of Beadalon® 49 .018 gold-plated jewelry wire. Attach one end to one side of the watch face with a 2x2mm gold-filled crimp tube. For instructions on how to crimp, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Cover the crimp tube with a gold-filled crimp cover.

Step two: String a mookaite flat oval bead followed by four gold-plated pewter heishi spacers. Repeat this pattern until you have four stone beads. At this point add a Bead Stopper to the end of your wire to hold it and repeat the entire process on the other side of the watch face.

Step three: Measure the watch by holding it to your wrist and add or remove beads as needed. Always finish with at least 3 spacers so that your clasp will close easily. Crimp the wire to the clasp and cover with crimp covers.
