Inspiration Monday: Alert the Fashion Watch!

Get your creative juices flowing

Fashion Watch
by: Rochelle Kilmer

Watch what happens when you wear this - you'll get compliments. And the most fun part is - you can mix and match - change it up - add strands, take them off, dress it up, funk it up, go casual, sleek, chic or whatever your taste du jour is!

These are just a few examples of what you could use for interchangeable watch bands. You will probably need at least 2 or 3 to look balanced with this sizable watch face - which has the advantage of being super easy to read!

Any of the 15 mm or larger lobster claw clasps will fit onto the bar on the watch face. The watch face adds 5 cm or 2 inches - so plan your strap length accordingly. These are all about 17 cm  or 6.5 inches.

String each strand separately - finishing with a crimp, crimp cover, wire guardian and a lobster claw at each end. Or just a jump ring to attach the clasp to the components - as in the case of the Rivoli strand.

Add and remove strands to suit your mood, celebrate a holiday or match your style. After all - you are on "Fashion Watch."
