Beads (of your choice, cost $3-$12 a package depending on what you choose)
1.0 mm stretch beading string ($2-$3 a roll)
4 lobster claws ($3 a pkg. of 4-6)
Pkg. 3 hole spacers ($4 a pkg.)
Piece of felt
A watch face with pins (to complete the watch)
Cut a 15 inch piece of the 1.0 mm stretch string.
You are going to start at the center of the 15 inch string. (This will be one end of the watch band.) Put one or two small beads to keep the lobster claws apart. Add one lobster claw on either side of the center beads. Make sure that the opening of each claw faces the same direction.
Once you have it “done”, tie a tight square knot in the two ends of the string. Cut the ends close to the knot and put a drop of super glue on the knot, this will prevent the knot from untying. Let is set for one minute.
Things you need to know:
1. The 1.0 mm stretch string is thick enough that it is really hard to break, but it can stretch out.
2. You may hand wash the beads, but be sure to get it really dry like with a blow dryer.
3. If it does become stretched out, just restring on fresh piece of string.
4. Like most pieces of jewelry don’t wear it to bed, this one thing wears out jewelry faster than anything else you do.
Now you are good to go. Enjoy!
