I've been busy busy busy this week but not TOO busy to make more watch bands. I'm being inspired right now by the watch faces I got in the mail last week. You will see my prices are for the WATCH BAND ONLY.... if you want a watch face it is an additional $10.00. My watchbands run from $7.50 to $12.00 each depending on the beads that make them up.
As I mentioned in my last blog, I wanted to create watch bands with matching necklaces. I have several here that I made to match necklaces that I already had.
This one I made just especially for the watch band though. This is the second watch band that I made and when I bought the beads I bought enough to make a necklace with it...and so, created this gorgeous piece. I call it Peach Beauty - the necklace and earrings alone would sell for $25. The watch band is another $10, and the watch face another $10.00 ...that's $45 for ALL, but I've discounted them, as a group, to $40.00
This necklace is called Checkered circles and it looks great with this watch band. I could make a necklace to match the bracelet perfectly or a watch band to match the necklace perfectly. Three choices with this one if you are interested in a matched set. The necklace and earrings sell for $20.00 The watch band plus the watch face and the necklace set would be discounted to $35.00 for all.
Copper marble is the name of this necklace set. You can see where I got the name for this one with the oversized marble stones. This necklace normally sells for $22.00. The watch band would be $12.00 and the watch face an additional $10.00 if you wanted it also. However, necklace, earrings, watch face and watch band would sell for only $40.00 instead of the $44.00 separately.
This necklace is called Garden Mist and I have posted it previously also. It has matching earrings and it HAD a bracelet that went with it. However, I was not happy with the wiring on the bracelet and so took it apart and made this matching watch band for it. With the Swarovski element pieces (2) placed into the watch band (they cost me $1.50 apiece!) I have to charge $12.00 for this watch band.
This is my turquoise dichroic glass necklace and earring set. The watch band is made up of the same bead work and is stunning with the copper toned watch face. The pricing on this set is: $24.00 for the necklace and earrings, $12.00 for the watch band, plus $10.00 for the watch face. I would discount it to $40.00 also.
This watch band is in crystals and silvers - one that you could wear with almost anything. It sells for $10.00 for the watch band. The watch face would be another $10.00
This is the same watch band you just looked at. You can see more of the detail of the watch band above.
This watch band is made up of large pieces of amethyst with other beads in silver and purples and lavenders. $10.00 -
This watch would match the necklace I sold this summer called Carnelian Heart. As you can see it has large pottery squares, circles and one heart in carnelian tones. It is accented in gold. It sells for $12.00. I do have additional pieces that I could make another matching necklace for it.
Most of the watch faces have bars on each side of the watch face that you connect the two lobster claws to. I make a double stranded watch band for them . The watch band above in browns and the one below in pinks are made with a single 'strand' and a single lobster claw on each end to connect to smaller watch faces that have loops on each end. These watches will be less expensive - the bands will sell for $7.50 each as will the watch face.
You can see this watch face has the metal loops at each side for a single lobster claw. They are also interchangeable with different watch bands. This whole watch AND watch band set would sell for $15.00
There are actually two necklaces that go with this watch band. The one on the left called Evening Splendor is a one of a kind series that I have posted previously. Double click on the picture so you can see the beauty of this watch band. The pendant on the necklace is a Swarovski Element and I have placed two identical pieces into the watch band so it is a truly elegant piece. The necklace and earring set sells for $24.00 normally. The watch band costs $12.00 and then add an additional $10 for the watch face. I would give a 10%+ discount if you bought the watch, the band, and the necklace...$40.00 for all.
The necklace on the right is an illusion necklace called Porcelain Beauty that normally sells for $15.00 - again add $12.00 for the watch band, and another $10.00 for the watch face but I would discount all to just $33.00 for the complete set.
This watch band was on my last blog but kind of got lost in the shuffle. As I took pictures for my Etsy site I decided this was so pretty I needed to post it again. $10.00 for the watch band
My ladybug watch band sells for $10.00
This watch band is fun as it has two little picture frames that you can slip pictures of your loved ones into....great gift for a new mom!!! It will sell for $12.00 for the band. This one is done in pale pinks but it can be done in pale blues or any color tone you wanted!
Last but not least is this sunshine yellow watch band. It is not the same one that I showed you last week with the yellow pearl flat beads and crystals all around. It has some of the same beads but also has big pale yellow pearls and cute little sunshine flowers. Only $10.00 for the watch band and/or $10.00 for the watch face.
I haven't had time to post any of these to my etsy site so if you want any of these just email me a firstname.lastname@example.org. Again - I make custom jewelry so if you have a special color desired or if you prefer big and clunky or petite and small - just email me and we will figure it out for you.
