Beaded Watch Bracelet


I've made another bracelet - a beaded watch bracelet this time.  My favourite watch was stolen a couple years ago (boo) and so I've just never got around to buying a new one.  I had this watch face in my beading stash that I bought at least 2 years ago and it's just been lying there...not sure why it was waiting so long to be turned into something useful, but anyway...

Since I've been in the mood to make bracelets these last few days, I thought I'd make this beaded watch bracelet! :D  I stuck to neutral colours (black, silver & clear glass) so that I would be able to wear it with as many outfits as possible:
I made this bracelet a summery garden theme with the use of glass leaves and butterfly charms.
It's so full of different beads that it was a pain in the bum to get a photo showing the beads individually, so this is the best I've got:
Now all I need is a battery for the watch.

While my beading mojo has returned for the time being, I've found myself ordering some more beads online (hehe) - you know how they say you can NEVER have too many craft supplies?  Well, it's true (if not MORE so) for beading. :)  So hopefully my soon-to-be-arriving beads will get some more beading creative juices flowing. :D
