A Tick-Tock Tree can't tell the time, but it can become a statement of timeless style! Wire and watch parts come together to form a twisted tree pendant that blends the industrial with the organic. Learn this technique and you can make your own tree pendants. Fill the branches with watch parts like we did, or add beads in your favorite colors.
