Delicate Gemstone Watch

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here to show you my favourite creation in a while. I made it a couple of weeks ago but hadn't taken photos because its lived on my wrist constantly! I got a beautiful watch face from ebay, then paired this with my favourite gemstones of the moment-Rose quartz, Hematite, Amethyst and Aquamarine. I used clear bicones and a heart toggle clasp-I find these the easiest to get on your own wrist :-)

I'm really excited to share with you the relaunch date for my All Crafts Challenge-its 3rd June at 10am. We have a fabulous new design team and we are having a blog hop to celebrate! Crafty Ribbons, Sarah Hurley and Stix2 have joined to sponsor and my team mates at Crafty Ribbons and Sarah Hurley are joining in with the challenge and hop to make lots of pretty non card items to inspire you to join in!

I started by doubling my tiger tail, and folding this over, then fixing the first ring with a crimp and covered this with the crimp cover. I then threaded m…
