Rolex Style Jewelry Wire Chain Watchband Jewelry Making Project

This alternative design for a jewelry wire watchband uses the links described in pages 2-4 along with a link that we call Rolex Style Jewelry Wire Watchband Jewelry Making Projecta wrapped figure 8 connector.  For this watchband, we use one of the links made using the pattern described in page 4 (two sizes of loops) along with three of the loops described in pages 2-3 on each side of the watch face.  These links were all made in 18 gauge wire.  These larger links are connected one to another using the wrapped figure 8 connector shown magnified above-left in silver.  Instructions for making the wrapped figure 8 connector can be found here.  The wrapped figure 8 connector was made with 20 gauge wire. 

In the watch shown above-right, the watch face combines gold-tone and silver-tone metal.  For this reason, we combined large gold links made on our WigJig jewelry making tools with small wrapped figure 8 connectors made in silver to mimic the combination of colors in the watch face.  We used a spring ring clasp for the watchband along with a silver guard chain.  For a monotone watch face, we would use the same metal for the large links and the wrapped figure 8 connector, but we would use 18 gauge wire for the large links and 20 gauge wire for the wrapped figure 8 connectors. 

We think you will like this jewelry wire watch band.  We gave a watch to each of our female relatives this Christmas.  They were very well received and made great gifts.
