Yesterday I was busy running around taking care of errands and other things when I was approached in the jewelry aisle by a woman who was looking for something specific. Why she thought I was an employee is beyond me, but I did not mind assisting.
As luck would have it, I was wearing a piece of Chain Maille or two, and interested in what I was wearing, she figured I must know about jewelry. That was some pretty good thinking on her part.
We scoured the aisles looking for what she wanted, unable to find the exact item we had a little consultation and came up with an alternative. After purchasing the material necessary, we sat down at the entrance and I showed her how to put the item together, and sent her on her merry way to finish up the project, wrap it and get it to where it needed to go.
Intrigued with the idea, although I do not like the Dione / Italian Pandora jewelry (I think it is tacky and ugly), I fiddled around with the idea and came up with this watch.
Pretty in it's own way, it would be wonderful for those that like the big clunky-chunky jewelry look that is so fashionable and popular these days. From charm bracelets to necklaces, watches and earrings, these are simple and easy to make on your own. If you can push a thread through a bead, you can make any of the items above with materials from your local craft store.
A Little Shop of Artists exclusive, $40.00. This watch will not be listed on line. Special requests are always honored. Not local? Give us a call or send us an e-mail and we will be happy to create one for your, or send you this one if you prefer.
The beads are glass and lined with a metal grommet, adding a little accent to the dark bead. Matching Pink Rhinestone spacer beads set off the lighter pastel color of the glass, making a lovely sparkly design. The Rhinestones on the watch face catch the light nicely, the silver tone metal is bright and shiny.
Glass beads are threaded along the metal watch band. If you get bored with this look, it is an easy thing to change the beads along the length of the band.
Measuring at about 8" this is a great band for those with a wider wrist,the beads do not interfere with the fit and feel rather cool to the touch when worn.
The watch face is very attractive, oval in shape the numbers are easy to read. The face is small enough to be feminine yet substantial enough to make a lovely focal point.
Thank you for stopping by and having a look.
The Alchemists Vessel would like to wish you a pleasant day.
