Meet ETERNITY: My 1st Recycled Watch

Eternity. That’s the name on the watchface. Ironic, huh? Eternity, and it no longer works.

Sorry, I didn’t get a Before photo. I had already taken it apart. I pieced this together for you. It had a REALLY well worn lavender watchband.

Isn’t this pretty?

Too pretty to just toss in the trash. I had an idea on what I wanted to make. A necklace using the main colors. Blue and pink.

I took the watchface with me to Munro’s last week and picked out one strand of blue glass beads and one of little pink round glass ones with flowers.

Here’s one of the reasons it takes me so long to create something. Right in the middle of working on a design, I change directions. You can see in this picture, one side already connected to the watchface. I took this all apart so it could connect with a lobster claw clasp instead. Undo, restart.

Moving on…. Another couple hours trying to get the correct size beads inserted into the giant keychain ball the way I wanted. And then deciding on how many strands of seed beads. For balance.

Hubby went out to Ace Hardware to get me these chains. Wasn’t that sweet of him!!

And the final look. It isn’t much Steampunk. More fashionable. I just didn’t see the point of adding gears and other parts. The chains are enough.
