These instructions are for watch faces that come with a hole through the extended piece on both ends of the watch. You will be using two pieces of Beadalon, each cut to approximately 10" or so. Put one end of your Beadalon through the hole in the watch and pull about half way through. now you ahve two strands of Beadalon to work with. You can proceed from here, either making a single strand, or double strand, watch band. You can put both strands of the Beadalon through the holes in your beads, (provided the hole in the beads is large enough to accomodate two strands) for a single strand band, or use each strand of the Beadalon separately to create a double stranded band. For a single strand band, put your beads on the two strands of Beadalon as if it were one strand, to the desired length. Remember to take into consideration that the watch and the clasp will account for approximately 1.5 to 2 inches of the overall length of your design, so string your beads with that in mind. Finish the end with the clasp of your choice, and a crimp that can accomodate two strands of Beadalon. Repeat the teps above for the other side of the watch. Finish this end with the appropriate jump ring or toggle end that goes with the clasp you have chosen. If you choose to make a double stranded band, you will put your beads on the two strands separattely, and if you desire, you can use the 2-Hole Dasyt spacers, or 2-Hole Rondels to bring the two strands together at measured intervals.A double stranded band can be finished using a two strand toggle or clasp, or can be finished using a standard clasp and crimp beads.
