I rarely ever wear a watch. I find it constricting and besides there's almost always someone nearby that can tell you the time if you really need to know. But many years ago, a friend of mine bought herself the most beautiful Gucci watch that I lusted over. I couldn't fathom paying so much for a watch but I always kept it in my mind that someday I would make something similar.
Here's the inspiration:
|Retails for approximately $850|
1) Carefully remove watch band.
2) Measure and cut two pieces of leather cording. I liked the look of one long piece on each side, folded in half, that wrapped around one and a half times (comfortably).
3) Attach jewellery findings. I used one end connector on each end of the leather (4 in all), added a jump ring, and connected to a closure.
