Intro: Let's Make a Wrap Watch
I’m pretty wild about any kind of wrap jewelry so I was super excited to make this wrap watch. If you’re like me and you like wrap jewelry too, go on and grab these items and let’s make one of these little beauties for you too!

I purchased all supplies from Michael’s Craft Supply.
Watch face with 6 connector ports
6 small jump rings
6 large jump rings
Bead Landing big ring chain in gunmetal
Strand of suede in color of preference
Small beads in color of preference
Glue on crystals
Step 1: Measure your wrist to see how long you want each side to be and how many wraps you want then cut your chain and suede to that size. I have fairly small wrists at 5.5 inches and I wanted the watch to wrap once on each side of the watch face, so I cut the chain, suede and bead thread on both sides at 9 inches. Then run the end of suede through large jump ring and glue it to itself to secure jump ring. Repeat with all 4 ends of sued.
Step 2: Glue crystals 1 inches apart onto suede.
Step 3: Connect chain and suede with small jump rings to the two outer connector ports of the watch base.
Step 4: Connect a small jump ring to the middle connector port of the watch base. Tie a knot with your bead thread to that jump ring and start stringing beads until you reach the same length as your chain and suede. Then repeat on the other side.
Step 5: Once you finish stringing your beads, connect your bead string, suede and chain with a large jump ring. Do the same thing on the other side except add the clasp. And you’re done!
