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 fun watch has a vintage look with the copper components, and a funky edge with the poppy jasper chips. It goes with denim, khakis or a business suit!

Step one: Cut two lengths of Beadalon® .018 jewelry wire to approximately eight inches each. String one of the wires through one side of the watch face, bend it in the center.

Step two: String approximately half an inch of poppy jasper chips on each side followed by an antique copper small Celtic diamond. Repeat this step two more times. As you work the two sides of this wire, it may be helpful to utilize a Bead Stopper so you do not lose your beads. Before finishing the design measure it against your wrist to make sure that this side of the watch will go halfway around your wrist. Add beads as needed to get the appropriate length.

Step three: After your third pair of celtic beads, crimp the ends to an antique copper heirloom two loop clasp using 2x2mm copper crimp tubes.

Step four: Repeat the steps with the second piece of wire to complete the second side of the design.
