Project Instructions

  • 1
    Project time does not include drying time for the glue.
  • 2
    Lay out your necklace with the watch movement in the center. Select an arrangement of pairs of gears and watch charms. Try to achieve visual balance, but avoid perfect symmetry. We used four pairs of different gears and clock charms on each side.
  • 3
    Use a good jewelry glue to attach the wings and a clock charm to the watch movement piece. The clock charm should extend a bit above the watch movement, as it will be the loop for attaching this element to the chain. Allow glue to dry.
  • 4
    Make two equal lengths of chain, approximately 12 inch each. The easiest way to “cut” lengths of chain is to use pliers to open links as if they are jump rings.
  • 5
    Use a spare chain link as a jump ring to attach the wing/watch assembly to both chains.
  • 6
    Attach a jump ring to each gear and watch face piece. It’s more fun to mix up metal finishes randomly. (You will need about 24 jump rings.)
  • 7
    Use a third jump ring to attach pairs of these charms to the necklace, counting links to space them out evenly.
  • 8
    Attach a jump ring to one open end of chain, and use another jump ring to link the clasp to the other end.
