D.I.Y. Watch Parts Necklace Pendant

Create a steampunk necklace or a conversation-starting accessory to complement your outfit using watch parts!

Crafted by Nancy.

Supplies

  • Watch Parts
  • Bezel Pendant
  • Inkssentials Glossy Accents

All supplies for this project can be found at our Bonney Lake store.

We sell small containers of watch parts in our Beads Department.

1.  Lay out or have an idea of the design on how you want the watch parts to look on the bezel.

You can use anything that will contain the watch parts, such as a bezel pendant, bottle cap, and even a shell of a pocket watch.


2.  Apply a small amount of Glossy Accents onto the surface of the bezel or the item you're using to glue the watch parts on.
3.  Using your fingers or a pair of tweezers, lay down the watch parts in the desired design.
4.  After placing all the watch parts onto the bezel or surface, apply a small amount of Glossy Accents over the top to secure the watch parts. 
5.  Let dry before wearing or adding additional parts.

Nancy glued the watch parts to an old watch face and glued a bale to create this pendant it.

For this pendant, Nancy put it into a bezel and wired a loop to attach it to a necklace. On the back of the pendant, she glued decorative paper so that it can be worn either way.

Here is another way you can create a necklace from watch parts: using jump rings to attach various parts.
