Chunky Watch Bands


For cousin craft night this month we made chunky beaded watch bands.  There are so many fun beads available, that it makes it hard to choose what to use.  I used many different textures and mediums on mine.  My color pallet was turquoise blue and brown.  My beads were a variety of kiln glazed glass, lampwork glass, Thick blown glass, carved wood, and metal.  I love the huge watch face.  I used to buy men's watches in high school, just so I could have the larger face.
Cousin Sarah made yummy Chicken Noodle Soup, and Cousin Laura taught us how to make the beaded watch bands.  It was a fun night of talking and crafting.  I was able to fully participate this time because Matt got home from work early.  I was able to talk to other women while crafting and did not have to tell Asher to leave the scissors alone, or tell Abbie to keep her finger and/or carrots out of her nose:)  It was bliss! 
I can totally foresee this particular craft, becoming habit forming:)
