Sophisticated Multi-Strand Watch Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This elegant watch would cost hundreds in a retail store. It is beautiful, bold and classy all at once. Dressy enough for a night on the town!

Step one: Cut two pieces of Soft Flex jewelry wire to approximately four 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 use a crimp tube, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Cover the crimp tube with a sterling silver crimp cover. String nine 7mm Swarovski cream pearls and add the end of the wire to a Bead Stopper. Repeat on the other side of the watch.

Step two: When you have the pearls strung, measure the watch against your wrist. Make appropriate adjustments and crimp the wire to the center loop of a five ring tube clasp.

Step three: Cut four lengths of each chain to in proportion to your pearl strands. Using sterling silver open jump rings attach the chain to the loops of the clasp and the watch face.
