RECYCLED WATCH



Here's one of my old watches that has come to "live" since I changed the old straps for new beaded ones. I used green beads from the Artisan set and 0.5 mm silver wire. I also used the Macramé knot called flat or plain, cutters, crimp beads and a clasp. It might need some more filing on the face as the black paint on it was peeling. I only need to get a battery now and I'll have a green watch to match the green jewelry I made earlier.

En este proyecto recicle uno de mis relojes antiguos y lo "reviví" al cambiarle las correas por unas hechas con piedras de vidrio. Use las piedras verdes del set Artisan y alambre plateado de 0.5 mm. Tambien usé el nudo plano de Macramé, tenazas cortadoras, crimp beads y un broche plateado. Puede que necesite mas lijado en la parte central ya que la pintura original negra se estaba pelando. Solo tengo que ponerle una bateria nueva y tendre un reloj verde que vaya a juego con la joyeria que he hecho anteriormente.

Oh how I wish I could do beading! I have a tremor in my hands and so I am limited on what I can do and beading is one of them. Since I can't, Ana, I will just enjoy your lovely, lovely creations like this watch....gee, you made it brand new. Way to go!

Hi!
I just hopped here and am not quite sure how! But I am so glad I did. I love the variety of things you make. This watch looks fantastic and I adore the ATC business cards you made.
I'm just back from my Easter break and will soon be posting details of my PIF competition on my blog if you'd like. I hope you will.
Best wishes,
SammieJay
