Watch this space

Now for something a bit different! I used to make lots of jewellery (I won't show you the drawers full of beads) but haven't done much in ages......then I saw an idea online somewhere and had one of those "I can make that" moments.
 Only thing was I had to collect some bits and pieces together so off I went to my local junk/collectibles place to look for some old watches......not as easy as I thought it might be but I did get a couple and 2 nice old watch keys. 

 Not really enough for what I had planned but then when I was telling my Mum about it she said she had a couple of old watches I could have, one was hers (above) and one my Grandmas (below)......perfect:)
 I didn't end up using the one that was Grandmas, will save it and do something else with it.

 Mums watch had a little St Christopher hanging from it so I had to use that too.


Used one of the keys as a dangle.....am thinking another couple keys would make fun earrings to go with the bracelet.

 This is what I ended up with.....a retro/vintage/recycled bracelet that I am very happy with!

A very cool bracelet and I love the personal element of using your Mum's old watch.

The bracelet is great Sue. Did you use copper wire to bring it together? Can't really tell. What a grand design!
