Picture of DIY Beaded Watch Bands
I don't usually wear jewelry, but I think that those beaded watchbands you see around are really cute.  It turns out they are incredibly easy to make if you have the right stuff.

I got my beads at a local bead store and online.  For this project you need a few cute chunky beads, claps (4 per band), rings, connecter bars, smaller beads and Stretch Magic clear jewelry cord.   I have tried other brands, and this one just holds up the best without coming undone or stretching out.

First, I set out the beads in the order I wanted.  I placed the rings on either side of the middle section (between the connector bar and the bead).
 

This is really cute!
