Retired - Leopard Print Beaded Watch

PROJECT B733
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
Create customized watches to match your favorite outfit by even-count peyote bead weaving a watch band and connecting it to a pretty watch face. This watch features a dramatic leopard print pattern.
Instructions
  1. To make this watch, please view the video: How to Peyote Bead Weave a Watch Band.
  2. In the video you will learn how to add watch strap adapters to your watch face lug bars, how to peyote stitch the watch band, and how to attach the watch band to both the adapters and the clasp.
  3. The video demonstrates the striped version of this watch, not the leopard print. All the techniques are the same regardless of the pattern. However, to make this watch project, please follow the leopard print peyote pattern provided. To learn how to read a pattern, please watch the video: How to Read a Peyote Pattern Bead Chart.
  4. It is important to note that you will want to "try on" the watch as you are working to make sure you end up with a proper fit. The video provides some tips on how to go about doing this. When beading, you might find that you do not need to bead the entire length of the leopard print pattern. Feel free to stop on whatever row feels like the best fit for your wrist.
