Finding beauty in left over pieces of jewelry components
These are watch backs from Bsueboutiques.com
About an inch in diameter I bought some for creative purposes. When they arrived my first thought was to make one into a bracelet.
Leftover bits of rolo chain and a clasp with a few jump rings complete the basics.
This beautiful ceramic rose fits perfectly into the watch back.
This makes an attractive combination.
Holes were punched through the watch back to accommodate the jump ring.
The jump rings make a smooth transition to the chain.
E-6000 glue will make a strong bond between the roses and the metal.
All finished with a lobster claw and a jump ring to accept it. A quick project and a nice result. Re-purposing old parts works.
