Watches with beaded bands

It seems we are always busy in our house, many things to do, places to go, and since the kids are older, most of us are on different schedules, running in different directions.

I'm working on another challenge quilt, so can't post photos of that, but I did manage to take a little time to do a little jewelry making, and can share that with you. The watch I wear every day needed a little repair, as the jump ring that attaches the band to the watch had separated, and as I was getting out the tools, I noticed some watch faces that were waiting for bands. After a bit more digging, I found everything I needed not only to repair my every day watch, but to finish these watches, as well as some bracelets. I just couldn't resist posting a quick picture of these now - instant gratification, you know.

What a beautiful, resourceful and stylish way to "fix" your watch bands. They are great!

That is a cool idea and of course they are beautiful. I almost wish I had a watch to cannibalize.
