I am allergic to some base metals. When I learned how to make beaded bracelets, it was easy to go one step further to create beaded watch bands, so that I could wear my watch again. On certain instructable you have seen pictures of my hands and some beads. Those beads are my watch band. So, this is; “How to Make a Beaded Watch Band”. I made three bands, using 3 types of beads. Look at the extra pictures to see how the different beads look during each step. Okay, let's get started.
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)
