What fun!! Coming up with ideas for all those broken watches I got on eBay.

How about this? Placing the backs in a wooden frame on a bed of black seed beads? Could be a paperweight. Or a miniature standing shadowbox. That is, could be, once I figure out how to get it all to stay put and not fall apart when picked up.

Another project from the book, Mastering Beadwork by Carol Huber Cypher, pages 195-197. What a unique way of working with stringing wire AND beadwork. I like it so much, I am making a necklace using this technique. I really love this book.

These earrings match a couple of the bracelets I made a month ago. Necklace about half done. More photos to follow.

To keep from getting bored, I am switching back and forth from stringing to beadwork to beadpunk to steampunk. So, you will have to keep coming back to see what I am working on next.
