Over the years, I’ve collected a large selection of watches. Most were inexpensive with beads, charms, and other do-dads that caught my eye. Unfortunately, I’m hard on watches so most of them are broken in some way. I’ve taken to using these parts to make new jewelry.
I discovered a large, black tear drop pendent in my stash, and used my favorite pink beads to highlight it! The beads, silver & pink, are from a watch that went all over the floor in my middle school classroom while I was teaching a rousing lesson on exponents. We were finding beads for days! The piece is put together with a small length of recycled guitar string and a repurposed stainless chain.
