#Cre8time Transformations... Steampunk Watch REDUX by Tanya Ruffin

I have been saving this old watch for awhile waiting for the right thing to make. The watch back was gone and all I had was the band and the crystal. I had planned on putting an image inside but then a discovery changed my plans.

One day digging through some supplies I found a small container of watch parts and mini keys. And it all came into light... make it a new bracelet with resin!

I had to plan what I was going to put inside because the crystal was the bottom and that would be the top. So I placed a small key inside, mixed some Amazing Clear Cast Resin and put a small amount in the watch face {CLICK HERE to view mixing/preparation}. After I let that cure a few hours, I mixed some more resin, then poured it in and placed a watch gear. I slowly layered the embellishments.
Then trying to decide what to put as the background (the top layer) I placed it on my wrist and discovered I did not want a background. I loved how it looked seeing completely through it. So I left it clear.

So if you find a watch that no longer works – take out the back and make yourself a fun and funky Steampunky watch bracelet!

How do you upcycle items into cool jewels??
