I wanted one with a beaded band and couldn't find one so I made it. :)

That is pretty.  I have a real hard time finding a watch taht i like and wont give me rashes where band is. Regardless of what material the band is, i get a rash.

 That was why I wanted beads. I find the solid band against my skin uncomfortable. The beads kind of move around where leather kind of stays put. I don't like anything tight against my skin. My wedding ring even bothers me sometimes. I don't even get a rash, just don't like how it feels. Weird huh?

If anyone is interested in making one, I got everything at AC Moore for less than $12. The watch face was on clearance. They had silver plated and copper. The beads were on sale and I bought some of that clear stretchy cord to make the band out of so that I could slip it off and on.

So pretty!  I no longer wear a watch, but I like ones with beaded bands.


My grandma always used watches with beaded bands.  She found them in catalogs (she was a huge catalog shopper).
